Thorne Crest Senior Living Community is again this year, sponsoring the Walk To End Alzheimer’s.  Along with the financial commitment of sponsoring this event, Thorne Crest also has a team raising funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research.

This year’s Walk To End Alzheimer’s will take place on September 14that Frank Hall Park, 712 Frank Avenue, Albert Lea, MN. Registration will begin at 9AM. The opening ceremony will begin at 10AM with the walk following, at 10:20AM.

Each year, more than 500,000 people come together in over 600 communities to advance the fight against the disease.  Thorne Crest, along with Amanda Weiss Irvine and her family are responsible for bringing this walk to Albert Lea.

This year’s honorary family is the Jimenez family. They are walking to honor Jesse Ronald Jimenez.  Jesse was diagnosed with Lewy Body Dementia in 2005.  He was his family’s rock and the voice of reason, but at the age of 78, after a fourteen year fight, Jesse lost his battle with Alzheimer’s.
