Winchester joins the fight to end Alzheimer's

Shanahan Real EstateGroup joins the town of Winchester in the fightto end Alzheimer's.

Our Town of Winchester

Its amazing how a good thought materialized into the founding local chapter of the Alzheimers Association. This is exactly what a group of residents from Winchester did. Jon McCafferty and Donna von Halle were the catalyst in organizing and recruiting team captains. On Sunday, September 25th over 100 residents from our town joined in the Walk to End Alzheimers held in Boston along the Charles River. As one of the team captains, I asked my fellow associates to join me in this most worthy cause. The Shanahan Real Estate Group stepped right up and joined into the raising of donations, adding moral support, and walking the walk! Our team raised $1,600. In all, there were over 100 walkers from this founding Winchester chapter. The spirit of giving in time and donations and support of our families made this a very rewarding day for all of us. Our Shanahan Real Estate Group was also able to keep our office open for business on the Sunday of the walk and also host open houses for some of our listings. What a great office to associate with. Borrowing a statement from a recent Boston Globe article, one in every 8 people over age 65 will have this devastating disease. - Mary Price, Shanahan Real Estate Group Thank you to Shanahan Real Estate Group's Mary Price for contributing this blog and spearheading the efforts from our office for the walk.
