[Las Cruces, NM] – January 25, 2022 - 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 $18,000 for the Alzheimer’s Association’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s®. Despite the pandemic, this Center was still able to take time out of their busy schedules for this noble cause. The Village at Northrise community provides skilled nursing, senior living, and independent living services and includes a 24-bed specialized Memory Support Program.
Over 35 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 over 250 affiliated Genesis HealthCare centers nationwide. In 2021, Genesis HealthCare raised approximately $100,000 company-wide and has continued to add to their lifetime achievement of $1,000,000+ in support of the Alzheimer’s Association’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s.
Bonnie Zeiler from The Village at Northrise states, “As the team captain for Genesis Striders from Northrise for the last 11 years, it has been amazing to expand and increase our fundraising efforts despite being in the middle of a pandemic. With continued support from current and former family members and our staff, our team raised over $18,000 this year. We are proud to be a part of helping to END Alzheimer's!”
