Every 68 seconds, someone is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. That’s why dozens of volunteers collected donations along Monument Circle Friday.
It was all a part of the 11th Annual Forget Me Not Days Fundraiser.
Volunteers clad in green aprons collected donations for the Alzheimer’s Association.
In exchange for a donation, they gave away packets of forget-me-not-flowers. The goal is to encourage people to plant seeds in honor of those with the disease.
One-hundred percent of the money collected is going to the Alzheimer’s Association thanks to a partnership with Bankers Life and Casualty.
