[Las Cruces, NM] – February 17, 2021 - The Village at Northrise, a 16-acre Genesis HealthCare-affiliated Continuing Care Community located at 2884 N. Roadrunner Parkway in Las Cruces, New Mexico, announced today that it raised more than $11,000 for the Alzheimer’s Association’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s®. Despite the pandemic, this Center was still able to take time out of their busy schedules for this noble cause. The Village at Northrise community provides skilled nursing, senior living, and independent living services and includes a 24-bed specialized Memory Support Program.
Over 30 participants from The Village at Northrise joined the Alzheimer’s Association’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s® in the fight to end Alzheimer’s disease. For their achievement, The Village at Northrise will be presented with a trophy for raising the most funds of any of the over 325 Genesis HealthCare centers nationwide. In 2020, Genesis HealthCare raised over $65,000 company-wide and has reached a lifetime achievement level of $1,000,000+ for the Alzheimer’s Association’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s.
“It is truly an honor to advocate for an end to this devastating disease,” stated Donald Wilson, Regional Executive Director. “With the leadership, guidance and inspiration of Bonnie Zeiler, our team captain, we have once again raised the most of any Genesis Center across the entire country. My thanks to all the people that participated in this accomplishment and especially to the donors without whom we would not have raised over $11,000 in 2020.”
More than 5 million Americans are living with Alzheimer's disease – the sixth-leading cause of death in the United States. Additionally, more than 16 million family members and friends provide care to people with Alzheimer’s and other dementias.
