Facilitator Training - May 24, 2017
Memories in the Making is a watercolor art program that empowers individuals living with dementia to tell their stories through their art. The Facilitator Training teaches participants how to run Memories in the Making in their own facility, center or respite program. It will include different opportunities to become involved in ongoing Memories in the Making events. Participants are encouraged to tailor Memories in the Making to fit their own program's needs. The training is Wednesday, May 24 from 8:30 a.m.-1:00 p.m. at the Alzheimer's Association's office in Williamsville. There is a $25 fee per person.
Online registration can be accessed HERE or by calling 1.800.272.3900.
The Longest Day is one of the signature fundraising event for the Alzheimer’s Association, and like the highly successful Walk to End Alzheimer’s, individuals and teams can organize events and fundraise all year round . The event is traditionally celebrated on the Summer Solstice, (June 21), and is all about love: love for someone with dementia, love of being active, love of being part of an effort to end this disease!

Young professional women from our community hit the turf for a flag football game that aims to raise funds and awareness of Alzheimer's disease and the Alzheimer's Association WNY Chapter. There are so many ways to get involved with RivAlz Blondes vs. Brunettes - volunteer, play, coach, cheer from the sidelines!
Even if you can't attend the game, you can still support these amazing women by making an on-line donation to the RivAlz Program at: BvBBuffalo.com or follow the teams on Facebook - www.facebook.com/BvBBuffalo.
Join us on a family-friendly, all-ages appropriate 2-mile FUNdraising walk at five Western New York locations this fall! Entertainment, souvenirs, basket and 50/50 raffles and snacks are all available on the day of Walk, with fundraising encouraged to earn wonderful incentives and benefit our mission to end Alzheimer's. We provide resources and education for all those impacted by dementia across eight counties (Allegany, Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, Erie, Genesee, Niagara, Orleans and Wyoming) and a portion of funds is dedicated to research to find treatments and a cure for this progressive and fatal disease. There is no fee to register/Walk, but fundraising is strongly encouraged, as this is the major source of support for us. Info/registration by clicking HERE, by calling 1.800.272.3900 or by visiting the WNY Chapter office at 2805 Wehrle Drive, Suite 6 (at the corner of Harris Hill) in Williamsville.
