is the world's largest fundraiser for Alzheimer's care, support and research. This inspiring event calls on participants of all ages and abilities to join the fight against the disease.
Tierney said of the Alzheimer’s Association and the bank’s support:
Alzheimer’s is a horrific disease. The Alzheimer’s Association is a wonderful organization who shines a light on this devastating disease and makes it a national priority by increasing research funding. We’re proud to support their mission and will one day hopefully see a world without Alzheimer’s.
Autumn Hotaling, Senior Manager of the Alzheimer’s Association, Massachusetts said of the bank’s contribution:
