Blacksmith Coffee Roastery is honored to be providing coffee to the 2009 Memory Walk in Denver on Saturday, September 19th. With 7500 anticipated walkers, this is a huge event sponsored by the Alzheimer’s Association to help fund continuing research and efforts to cure Alzheimer’s disease. We have many customers and friends in Colorado who we hope will be able to attend. Plus, you’ll get to enjoy some Blacksmith Coffee right in the shadow of the golden dome of the Colorado state capitol building! Last year, the Denver walk raised over $750,000 for Alzheimer’s!
Not in Colorado? No problem! The Alzheimer’s Association is trying to get 30,000 teams to host Memory Walks across the United States. So far, there are 22,016 teams. Kansas has 9 Memory Walks scheduled between now and the end of 2009. If you are interested in starting a team or organizing a Memory Walk in your community, click here to get more information.
