Alzheimer’s Walk at the Zoo

Our Pastoral Care Ministry sponsors a team each year to participate  in the Alzheimer’s Walk at the Little Rock Zoo.  This year’s walk will take place on Saturday, October 1, 2011.  We sponsor a team to show our support for those living with Alzheimer’s.

Our team is called Second Safari and we will gather at the Zoo at 7:45 a.m. to take a team picture, put on our Safari hats (optional), and join together for all the morning fun and festivities.

Coffee, juice, and snacks will be provided so you can have breakfast with the animals!  You can choose to sit, stroll, walk, visit, cheer others on, or run.  There are always wonderful door prizes and team awards.   Our Second Safari team has been one of the largest Community Organizations present at the walk.  We hope to have a large team again this year.

The Alzheimer’s Arkansas Walk raises community awareness and funding for vital services such as early stage patient/caregiver support groups, family education and community awareness presentations, 24-hour telephone support, and so much more.  All family services are provided free of charge and all proceeds stay in Arkansas. 

We are pleased that our church hosts an Alzheimer’s Support group on the first Thursday of each month with the help of church members Janet Nelson and Warren Boop.

The Pastoral Care Ministry will be making a donation for the Second Safari team to Alzheimer’s Arkansas.  You do not need to make a gift unless you want to buy an Alzheimer’s Arkansas T-shirt, which costs $25.  Our team has our own yellow Second Safari T-shirts.  If you sign up for the walk, Karen Akin will have a shirt for you.  We hope you will join us in this fun and worthwhile morning at the Zoo!

Sign up at the church to attend this fun and worthwhile event. (A signature is needed for all participants.)  If you have any questions, please call Karen Akin at 227-0000 or email karenakin@secondpreslr.org
