Residents raise funds for Alzheimer’s walk

Team Captain Lisa Beckman announced that the Naomi’s Memory Walkers Team will again be participating in the Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s® in Bismarck, North Dakota on September 24, 2016 at Shiloh Christian School. The Team will be joining over 200 participants from across North Dakota in the 3-mile Walk to End Alzheimer’s in support of the Alzheimer’s Association.
This is the second year that the Naomi’s Memory Walkers Team has participated in the Bismarck Walk to End Alzheimers. Last year the Team received the Top Fundraising Team Award for raising $5,793.72 and Lisa Beckman received the Top Fundraising Individual Award for personally raising $3,134.65 of the team total.
The Naomi’s Memory Walkers Team consists of family and friends who are walking in memory of Naomi Ullman, lifelong Adams County resident, who passed away on August 18, 2014 from Alzheimer’s Disease. The 2016 team members are Lisa Ullman Beckman, Kenny Beckman, Cassy Beckman, Madison Beckman, Sandi Ullman Lewis, Roger Ullman, Cheryl Ullman Stockton, Larry Differding, Kayla Powell, Mary Frieze Henderson, Olivia Henderson, and Travis Collins.
Naomi’s daughter, Lisa Beckman, wants to bring awareness and help raise funds for research so hopefully someday others won’t have to watch their loved ones suffer with Alzheimer’s Disease.
The Team will be holding a Bake Sale on Friday, September 23rd as their final fundraising effort before the Walk. The Bake Sale will be held at the Fun Bar (formerly the Woodfire Grill) at 600 2nd Avenue South in Hettinger from 9:00 a.m. until Noon, or everything is gone! Anyone willing to contribute baked goods for this cause can drop them off that morning at the Fun Bar or contact Lisa Beckman to arrange pickup. The Team looks forward to seeing you all there buying your goodies for the weekend.
