Papouli’s Greek Grill’s Lifestyle Ambassador Amber Anthony has been named as the new Event Chair for the 2013 Alzheimer’s Association San Antonio’s “Walk to End Alzheimer’s“ Anthony will serve as a volunteer leader directly responsible for the planning, execution and fundraising of the September 21, 2013 event.
Papouli’s involvement with the local chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association during the past three years and the success of its own Alzheimer’s-awareness event “The Race to Remember 5k” helped earn Anthony recognition in Alzheimer’s community. “The Race to Remember 5k” presented by Papouli’s raised $1,000 for continued Alzheimer’s research and financial support for families affected by the disease. The inaugural event was held on September 22, 2012.
“I have a passion for helping find a cure for this crippling disease that affects so many of our loved ones,” said Anthony. “The event chair position allows me to continue doing what I love, but on a larger scale, with the help of the local chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association.”
Last year’s “Walk to End Alzheimer’s” generated over $200,000 for Alzheimer’s research and financial support for those affected by the disease and initiatives to improve brain health.
The 2013 “Walk to End Alzheimer’s” is planned for September 21, 2013. For more information visit www.act.alz.org.
