TICF JOINS IN THE WALK
tO END ALZHEIMER’s
On a crisp October morning, TICF associates joined the Highlands Springs Senior Living Community team to support the Walk To End Alzheimer’s presented by the Alzheimer’s Association. As the leading cause of death for one in six people in the United States, Alzheimer’s Disease spreads deep in communities and impacts the lives of our loved ones, families, and friends. The Walk to End Alzheimer’s is an event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s disease research, support, and care. The TICF team supported by setting up the walk and welcoming and cheering on participants. In addition to the Associate’s time and hands-on volunteer efforts, TICF donated $10,000 to the Alzheimer’s Association.
We are proud to have Alzheimer’s Association as a valued community partner. It was inspiring to see our associates come together to support the great work done by the Alzheimer’s Association. The hope that permeated through the morning is a true testament to the future and the work that Alzheimer’s Association and their staff is leading in their tireless fight against this disease.

During the walk, the impact of the disease can be seen through the primary colors – orange, blue, yellow, purple, and white. TICF Associates passed out flowers in these colors to participants which signified the participant’s relationship to the disease.
The relationships ranged from participants who have Alzheimer’s (blue flower), those who are supporting or caring for someone with Alzheimer’s (yellow flower), those who support the cause (orange flower), and those who have lost someone to Alzheimer’s (purple flower).
This year, the walk was supported by an educational virtual event with the TICF team to inform Associates and their families about the disease, risk factors, and available support.
TICF is here for North Texas, the Alzheimer’s Association, and for each other. We’re all in this together. #WhyWeWalk #EndAlz #FightAgainstAlzheimers
