Event promotes Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month
INDIANAPOLIS, June 15, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — On Friday, June 2nd, Indianapolis International Airport visitors were surprised by a flash mob organized by American Senior Communities. The event was created as a means to raise awareness and funds for the Alzheimer’s Association during Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month, which takes place in June.
The Crispus Attucks Medical Magnet High School cheerleaders teamed up with 50 ASC staff members, caregivers and volunteers to dance for travelers to raise awareness and donate funds for the Alzheimer’s Association. As performers strutted their stuff, airport employees and onlookers boogied in the background while reading large signs with Alzheimer’s facts printed on them.
