LARSO helps raise funds for Alzheimer’s

-A A +A
By Bernadette Lauritzen

Tuesday was national Alzheimer’s Day and this weekend the volunteers of the Los Alamos Retired and Senior Organization will raise funds for the cause locally.
Saturday’s event will host a slew of activities beginning at 4 p.m. at the Betty Ehart Senior Center, with same -day registration and a gift basket raffle.
LARSO Director and member of the race committee, Pauline Powell Schneider is excited about the baskets donated by a large number of individuals and businesses. “People purchase tickets (6 for $5) and put their tickets with whatever items they hope to win. Donated raffle items include memory albums, manicures, tools, movie rentals, a genuine Hill Diner banana cream pie, a tie-dye hoodie, various business gift certificates, candles and much more,” Schneider said.
The Alzheimer race/walk committee is made up of a number of local citizens who are passionate about supporting families dealing with Alzheimer’s and raising funds to find a cure. The membership includes family caregivers, professionals working with the local support group and clients in residential care and at the senior center.  
The committee is assisted through the efforts of the New Mexico Alzheimer’s Association who have a joint goal of raising $15,000 to assist with local, statewide and national efforts.
