DSU Walk to End Alzheimer’s raises over $25,000!

DSU Hosts Walk to End Alzheimer’s; Student Athletes Shine

There was no game at Trailblazer Stadium on the morning of September 14, but there were hundreds of people doing battle against Alzheimer’s disease. They were there taking part in the Walk to End Alzheimer’s, which was hosted and sponsored by the DSU Student-Athlete Advisory Committee.

The vision to host the walk at DSU came from Wendi Bulkley, Associate Athletic Director. Dixie State is the first University in Utah to host a walk event and having young people engaged helps educate them about a disease that is wreaking havoc on our parents and grandparents. With an estimated one in ten adults over the age of sixty-five having Alzheimer’s it is important to prepare a younger generation about its impact. This includes care needs and the state of research on a cure to end, or at least control, the fourth leading cause of death in Utah.

“DSU athletes came out in force,” said Mike Miller, Regional Manager for the Alzheimer’s Association, “setting up tables and chairs, posting signs along the walk route, cheering participants, and anything else they could do to welcome and support guests at the Walk.” “Wendi and Cameron Chatwin were instrumental in making this walk a total success,” continued Miller. “Their leadership brought clarity to the project for student athletes and they responded in force,” said Miller.

Two other campus groups were involved in the walk, the CNA/Nursing Students Club, and the Population Health Club, as well as other students and faculty.

In total, more than sixty groups were on campus for the walk. Prior to the walk guests learned about research projects focused on finding a cure for Alzheimer’s and opportunities for engagement in advocacy and volunteer work.

More than $25,000 was raised by the walk, which supports local programs and services in Southern Utah. This includes caregiver support groups, which are crucial for those serving as caregivers because of the demanding nature of their work.

In addition to support from Dixie State University, other regional sponsors who made the Walk to End Alzheimer’s possible include Ovation at Sienna Hills, Roxberry Juice Co., Southgate Senior Living, Spilsbury Mortuary, and The Wentworth at the Meadows.
