Lexington Square hosts 'Rock N' Roll to End Alzheimer's'
Lexington Square-Lombard recently hosted "Rock N' Roll to End Alzheimer's."
"Alzheimer's disease has ravaged so many lives and continues to impact the people we love," said Dan Harrington, Vice President of Senior Living for Lexington Health Network.
"Under normal circumstances, Lexington Square senior living community in Lombard would have a team participating in the greater area's Walk to End Alzheimer's," Harrington said. "This raises money for research and awareness about the disease. Because of the pandemic, we held our own event locally at our community."
On Oct. 8, residents and staff sporting purple shirts for the #LexingtonStrong team walked around their beautiful campus in a show of solidarity and support.
Over the past several weeks, more than $3,000 had been raised through various fundraising initiatives.
"We're so proud of our team and grateful that despite the pandemic, we were able to raise money for a cause in which we so deeply believe," said Harrington.
The outdoor event, called Rock N' Roll to End Alzheimer's, included live musical entertainment by jazz vocalist Sandi Haynes.
