The 20th Annual Smoky Mountain Alzheimer’s WALK was held Sat. Sept. 29 at Pigeon Forge High School. Participants and volunteers from Sevier, Cocke, Hamblen and Jefferson counties enjoyed live musical entertainment, free food, door prizes, and fun for all ages. Even pets were included!
The Smoky Mountain community has pulled together to support families facing Alzheimer’s for 20 years. Alzheimer’s Tennessee remembers those who have been candles lighting the way with the song “Find the Way” performed by James Rogers at the 20th Anniversary Celebration. The late Alma Curtis and her sister Blanche Gulyash, Dr. Joe Copeland, and Grant Cantwell all demonstrated outstanding leadership for Alzheimer’s Tennessee, shining a light on Alzheimer’s disease, the need for services and research, as well as the impact it has on families.
We hope you will be “a torch of hope” going forward – lighting the way for families in the Smokies touched by Alzheimer’s. Alzheimer’s Tennessee appreciates those who have given – and helped others give – for the past two decades.
