With September only a few short months away, Seniors Helping Seniors of Greater Boston has amped up our fundraising efforts for the 2017 Greater Boston Walk to End Alzheimer’s. Last night we partnered with Chestnut Park at Cleveland Circle for an event to recruit and gather our growing team to raise money for a cause that impacts many of our clients and families. We were so inspired by the participation and outpouring of support we received last year from our community of caregivers, that we decided to increase our efforts for 2017. Josh Obeiter, SHS’ agency owner, has taken on a leadership role for this year’s walk as the official co-chair.
As a senior home care agency, many of our caregivers work with individuals who are living with Alzheimer’s Disease and have witnessed firsthand how devastating it can be for those individuals and their loved ones. We are so proud of our caregivers for the commitment that they continually demonstrate to helping their clients cope with the challenges that they face and for their dedication to helping raise awareness and funds for a cure.
Last night over 40 team members gathered together to officially establish our fundraising goals and commitments. We raised over $500 in raffle ticket and auction purchases and, as a team, we have raised over $5,000 with three more months of fundraising remaining. We are currently one of the top fundraising teams in the greater Boston area and we hope to keep the momentum going. At Seniors Helping Seniors of Greater Boston, we believe change begins at the grassroots level and we are committed to help make a positive difference in the lives of those affected by Alzheimer’s Disease.
