Plymouth’s Trillium Woods Hosts Walk to End Alzheimer’s Event
Residents of a Plymouth senior living community didn’t let a pandemic stop them from walking for a good cause over the weekend.
On Saturday morning, Trillium Woods hosted a socially-distanced “Walk to End Alzheimer’s” gathering on its Plymouth campus. A group of 50, mask-wearing residents and staff walked around the campus grounds, while music played to encourage them on their journey. Trillium Woods staff placed marks on the sidewalk every six feet to encourage social distancing.
The Alzheimer’s Association Minnesota-North Dakota Chapter had originally scheduled the annual event to take place on Sept. 26 at Target Field in Minneapolis, but the COVID-19 pandemic altered those plans.
Instead, the organization asked people to dress in purple and walk in small teams with friends and family; all with a goal of raising money and awareness for Alzheimer’s care, support and research.
The team from Trillium Woods raised more than $6,500 for the cause this year.
