Oil & Gas Supply Co. said April 10 that it has been a major contributor to Alzheimer’s Resource of Alaska since 2006 and supports programs and services provided by the nonprofit to those individuals affected by Alzheimer’s disease or related dementia in Alaska, or ADRD.
Last year Oil & Gas Supply not only helped sponsor the walk with a major corporate donation, they also started a team and raised an additional $2,300 for the cause.
ADRD is a cause that is important to Jackie Brunton, Oil & Gas Supply owner, whose mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s years ago. “The education and support I received from this great agency were invaluable to me as a caregiver and gave me the tools I needed to provide my mother with the quality and dignity of life she so deserved,” said Brunton.
This year the walk will be Saturday, May 12 at the Kincaid Chalet. The event is expected to attract up to 300 participants with a fundraising goal of $75,000. All monies raised by the organization stay right here in Alaska, enabling services to be provided throughout the entire state.
