White Horse Village Named 2020 Rookie of the Year by Philadelphia Walk to End Alzheimer’s

White Horse Village was named Rookie of the Year for the 2020 Philadelphia Walk to End Alzheimer’s. The community’s first Walk to End Alzheimer’s was held on November 14, 2020, raising $18,001 for the Alzheimer’s Association. The Philadelphia region came in second in the country out of 630 walks raising $1,177,960.

White Horse Village residents and team members coordinated a week of community activities leading up to the walk, including a yard and window decorating contest, costume contest, water walking, and gift baskets. Multiple walking courses of varying difficulty were available for participants, and COVID-19 safety protocols were enforced at all events.

“Our residents and team members are passionate about giving back to the greater community,” comments Len Weiser, President & CEO. “It was inspiring to see our nonprofit community come together and fundraise for an organization near and dear to our hearts and those we serve.” 

White Horse Village offers a full range of senior living options and healthcare services, including Four Season Memory Care. The specialized neighborhood provides services and support for individuals with cognitive changes. A highly trained and compassionate team strives to maximize each resident’s independence and provide person-centered care in a therapeutic, home-like setting.
