Casual Thursday

Thursday, June 21

The Wellness Center is partnering with the Hudson Valley Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association to recognize Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month in June. Alzheimer’s is the 6th leading cause of death in the US. It’s a progressive brain disease that affects 5.7 million Americans and their loved ones, and the number of those affected is predicted to rise to nearly 14 million by 2050.  Most likely, you know someone dealing with this disease. Our goal is to increase awareness of it and raise much-needed funds for research and education.

Join the Wellness Center for a dress-down day to benefit the local Alzheimer's Association. For a $5 donation you can come to work in your casual, comfortable clothes (no flip-flops). You will be given a sticker that lets everyone know you're Casual for a Cause. All proceeds will benefit education and community support programs for those with Alzheimer's and dementia and their families.

The following employees have volunteered to serve as Casual Day Reps and will be available to accept donations and hand out stickers (please bring correct change):
