“We are very proud to partner with the leadership at the College of Health Sciences including Lisa Donegan Shoaf, PT, DPT, PhD, Dean and Professor and Professor Megan Ady,” said Michelle LaRose, senior walk manager for the Alzheimer’s Association Central and Western Virginia chapter. “We know this will be a partnership beneficial to both the university, the college and our chapter. We look forward to all that is to come and to seeing everyone on Saturday, Sept. 24 for the Walk.”

The Walk’s fundraising goal is $95,000. Last year, the Walk raised over $76,800.
