White Horse Village raises $26,001 and wins the Top CCRC award for its second Walk to End Alzheimer’s

White Horse Village, a nonprofit senior living community, held its second annual Walk to End Alzheimer’s on September 10, 2021, featuring a weeklong celebration of activities. Both residents and team members embraced the event raising over $26,000 for the Alzheimer’s Association, exceeding the fundraising goal of $20,000 and increasing total funds by over 35% from last year. 

The Alzheimer’s Association Greater Philadelphia Chapter presented White Horse Village with the Top Continuing Care Retirement Community Award.

The community welcomed celebrity judges Shelly Buck, President of Riddle Hospital, and DJ Malcolm Poindexter III, KYW Newsradio traffic reporter, to select winners of various contests and encourage walkers. Poindexter had participants moving and shaking with his fun music playlist. Poindexter III lost his father, also a KYW Newsradio personality, to Alzheimer’s eleven years ago.

White Horse Village thanks the following planning committee members and volunteers for their hard work to make the walk a success.

  • Residents: Pat Cassels, Carol Henn, Bonnie Scott, Carolyn Shaffer, Beth Stensrud and Duane Thurman
  • Team members: Susan Abtouche, Barbara Caso, Melissa Dell’Orefice, Kelli Foley, Casey Gonzalez and Peter Leonowitz
  • Alzheimer’s Association: Abbey Hunton and Holly Rush

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