Filed Under: Non Profit News

Lasat Sunday’s Walk for Alzheimer’s in Provincetown surpassed the Alzheimer’s Family Support Center’s fundraising goal, raising over $140,000 for all the free services offered by the organization.

“Our thanks go out to the hundreds of people who showed up to walk, dance, and eat for our Alzheimer’s community,” said the organization’s co-founders Dr. Molly Perdue and Melanie Bravermen.

Sponsors included Broad Reach Healthcare, The Cooperative Bank of Cape Cod. Cape Cod 5 and Seamen’s Savings Bank.

Napi’s Restaurant, Van Rensselaer’s Restaurant and Liz’s Cafe also made generous contributions to this year’s walk.

“Our biggest thanks go to all of you who are living with Alzheimer’s, dementia, or cognitive loss, and the people in your life who are helping you along the way. You are the unsung heroes, and the reason why the AFSC was born in the first place,” added Perdue.

The AFSC is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization providing psychosocial educational supports to families, professionals and individuals living with Alzheimer’s and other dementia-related diseases. Services include support groups, consultations, care planning, phone support, education, insurance support, and social and cultural programming, at no cost. The AFSC is committed to providing support through every stage of dementia-related illness, not only for family caregivers and professionals but for people living with cognitive disease, from pre-diagnosis to bereavement and all of life that happens in between.

Anyone in need of the services can call 508-896-5170.
