THE VILLAGE AT NORTHRISE RAISES MORE THAN $13,000 FOR THE ALZHEIMER’S ASSOCIATION WALK TO END ALZHEIMER’S®

Walk to End Alzheimer’s is Largest Fundraiser Dedicated to Alzheimer’s Care, Support and Research

[Las Cruces, NM] – January 14, 2020 - 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 $13,000 for the Alzheimer’s Association’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s®. The Village at Northrise community provides skilled nursing, senior living, and independent living services and includes a 24-bed specialized Memory Support Program.

Over 40 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 nearly 400 Genesis HealthCare centers nationwide. Genesis HealthCare raised over $165,000 company-wide in 2019 and has raised more than $1 million over the last 5 years for the Alzheimer’s Association’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s.

“We are excited that our efforts have once again made us the top fundraising team in the Genesis organization,” stated Donald Wilson, Regional Executive Director. “The competition was stiff, which just means we all raised more money for the cause. Our team leader, Bonnie Zeiler, is passionate and dedicated to helping to eradicate this disease and to serve those who are affected by it with compassion and dignity.

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. With the dedication of organizations like The Village at Northrise and Genesis HealthCare, the Alzheimer’s Association can continue to move forward with its vision of a world without Alzheimer’s.
