Recently, Heritage Ministries Walk to End Alzheimer's team committee members presented a check in the amount of $4,200 to the Western New York Alzheimer's Association. The check was the result of fund-raising efforts for the 2013 Chautauqua County Walk to End Alzheimer's.
Through facility fundraisers and many individual walker donations, the Heritage Ministries Walk to End Alzheimer's team again increased their team contribution total from the previous year.
Since 2006, Heritage Ministries has raised more than $25,000 for Alzheimer's research.

For the fifth consecutive year, Heritage Ministries had the largest team at the event. Over 80 employees, family members, relatives, and friends participated in the walk.
"Each year, Heritage Ministries never ceases to impress with their involvement in the Chautauqua Walk to End Alzheimer's. The Western New York Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association is extremely appreciative of their support and is looking forward to continuing this amazing relationship with them," stated Phillip Weiss, Assistant Director of Development, Alzheimer's Association, Western New York Chapter. "Funds raised through the Walk to End Alzheimer's will help the Alzheimer's Association continue to serve the more than 55,000 people in Western New York who have memory-impairing illnesses. I would also like to thank Chautauqua County for coming out to show their support and willingness to fight against this terrible disease. This year you raised over $23,000, which helps us continue to provide our numerous programs and services in your community."
