Merchants Sponsors and Participates in 2023 Walk to End Alzheimer’s
On a sunny, warm September Saturday, a group of Merchants colleagues and their families joined fundraising teams from all over Western New York to participate in the 2023 Walk to End Alzheimer’s.
The 1.8 mile walk around Buffalo’s Outer Harbor is one of more than 600 annual Walk to End Alzheimer’s events held around the nation, making this the largest event to support Alzheimer’s awareness and fundraising in the world!
This year’s Buffalo and Erie County walk took place on Saturday, September 30, 2023.
Special thanks to Michael Alessandra (Vice President – Internal Audit) for once again organizing Merchants’ sponsorship and participation in this great event for an important cause!
