ADRIAN, Mich. – The Adrian College synchronized skating team has joined the movement to end Alzheimer’s disease taking part in the Lenawee County Walk to End Alzheimer’s on September 15 at Trestle Park. The 30-member team will walk in honor of all those who have been affected by, or are living with, Alzheimer’s disease and other cognitive disorders.
The team has already raised over $2,000 for the cause, currently poising them in second place for the event.
They are lead by assistant coach Cassandra Milosh, who is also their Walk Team Captain. Milosh will walk in honor of her grandmother who has been living with cognitive impairments for the last eight years.
“It has been an incredibly difficult journey for my family,” Milosh said. “Quality care has been a huge help in slowing down her progression. We are so thankful for all of the doctors and nurses who have been a part of this journey with us.”
Milosh has been an active volunteer with the Alzheimer’s Association since 2005, participating in philanthropic efforts throughout college.
“The skaters have done a wonderful job reaching out to friends and families to help get their support for this great cause,” Milosh said of her team. “We have now tripled our initial goal and hope that we can continue to raise even more before walk day.”
