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, September 27, 2014. 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 and third Thursday of each month with the help of church members Janet Nelson and Jo Ann McQuade.
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 financial contribution. Our team has our own yellow Second Safari T-shirts. Karen Akin will have a shirt for you. We hope you will join us in this fun and worthwhile morning at the Zoo!
