Cerna Home Care lent their support, time and hearts to the 2016 Irvine Walk to Defeat ALS. It is the ALS Association’s biggest annual event to raise funds for local chapters. The funds raised from the walk sustain care services and support research for much of the following year.
The Anaheim Walk to End Alzheimer’s was on November 14, 2015. Cerna’s CEO Nick Payzant participated in the Alzheimer’s walk along with Marc Friedman Cerna’s Senior Vice President – joined by Cerna’s Catalina Elwell, Laila Shanedling, family and friends. The day was filled with hope as people walked for a cure – and in remembrance of loved ones who will never see a cure.
The Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s is the nation’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research. Held annually in more than 600 communities nationwide, this inspiring event calls on participants of all ages and abilities to reclaim the future for millions. Together, we can end Alzheimer’s disease, the nation’s sixth-leading cause of death.
