Cruise for a Cause

Glenwood Place’s 4th Annual Cruise for a Cause event was huge success! The main goal in hosting an event like this is to raise money for the Alzheimer’s Association. Glenwood Place is a retirement community that focuses primarily on assisted living and memory care. “We see the effects of this disease firsthand, every day”, says Brooke Davis, Community Relations Coordinator. The Alzheimer’s Association states 5.6 million Americans live with the disease, and by 2050 this number is projected to rise to 14 million. “We fundraise for the Alzheimer’s Association all year long, but our Cruise for a Cause event is our largest fundraiser of the year. The Glenwood Place team also participates in the Ames Walk to End Alzheimer’s each October, which is the finale event for our fundraising year. The Cruise for a Cause event on June 17th raised $2,323. Our events and fundraising efforts would not be possible without the generous hearts of our family, friends and community members.”, says Davis.
