Walk to End Alzheimer's

As a provider for Alzheimer’s care and dementia, Friends Fellowship Community (FFC) is passionate about helping raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support, and research. We are proud to be an elite sponsor for the Richmond Walk to End Alzheimer’s and our walk team has been busy fundraising for our team.

The Richmond Walk to End Alzheimer’s is scheduled for Saturday, September 18. We would love for you to join our team! Or if you feel compelled, you may make a team donation to help us reach our fundraising goal. Did you know the FFC walk team raised the most money for the 2020 Richmond Walk? We are determined to surpass our fundraising amount from last year!
