The Dementia & Alzheimer’s Association of St. Clair County facilitates and hosts several special events, awards, and fundraisers throughout each year to highlight our mission while raising awareness of Alzheimer’s and Dementia disease and caring for a loved one
Inaugural Dementia & Alzheimer’s Association Luncheon
Marcia Haynes was a great community advocate, and when her husband, Fred, was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease in 2006, she became his advocate as well as his primary caregiver until his passing in 2014. Marcia’s passion for supporting dementia and Alzheimer’s research and caring for families and individuals impacted by more loss led her to establishing our association.
This luncheon will honor her vision, while also honoring our local advocates and organizations that share in Marcia’s mission.
Alzheimer’s 5K Run/Walk
Funds raised from the walk go to research at the Michigan Alzheimer’s Disease Center in Ann Arbor, Michigan, as well as supporting the Fred Haynes Respite Grant Fund for local caregivers and supports our Educational Speakers Series.
