John has been a member of the Heartland (Anderson/Muncie, IN) Walk to End Alzheimer’s Steering Committee for two walk seasons. The Walk to End Alzheimer’s is the world’s largest event to raises awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support, and research. This year he is the chair of the Mission subcommittee and is tasked with connecting community members and walk participants to the mission of the Alzheimer’s Association. In the past years, he ahs planted and manned the Anderson “Promise Garden” and worked closely with Walk leadership to ensure successful walk experiences for participants. John cares deeply about the mission of the organization and believes in the vision of a world without Alzheimer’s, and thanks to his commitment to the Heartland Walk, we are closer than ever to see our first survivor of this disease.
