Participants enjoyed beautiful weather on Saturday, Oct. 5 for psychology’s walk to benefit the Alzheimer’s Association

 

The two-mile walk through downtown Grinnell was a psychology service project to raise awareness of the national Alzheimer’s Association's program of Walks to End Alzheimer’s.

Our successful event was organized by Psi Chi, our chapter of the national psychology honor society, and Grinnell’s psychology Student Education Policy Committee (SEPC), an organization of majors. 

Thanks to the walkers and sponsors who raised over 300 dollars to support research in finding a cure for Alzheimer's disease, in which Iowa has the third highest death rate in the nation..   See more photos in our album.
