@AdrianVSST Kicks Off First Community Service Project with Walk to End Alzheimer's

ADRIAN, Mich.--The Adrian College synchronized skating and figure skating teams recently participated in its first community service project of the 2016-17 season, "Walk to End Alzheimer's," held on-campus Sunday, Sep. 18.

Adrian Skating helped raise more than $6,700--the most of any Bulldogs program participating--for the Alzheimer's Association.

Senior team head captain Maddie Sena ’17 participated in the "Walk to End​ Alzheimer's" in 2014 the last time the AC skating teams participated. "It was a lot of fun to participate in the Walk to End Alzheimer's again. I really liked that the walk was on the campus this year because there was so much student involvement. Over the past few years this event has really grown!"

Megan Sauer ‘18, Intercollegiate Figure Skating co-captain, enjoyed meeting and connecting with those affected by Alzheimer's. "Making a positive impact on others is really important to our team, so being able to interact with some of the people benefiting from our efforts was a very humbling experience.

Assistant synchronized skating coach Bonnie Lynch, who organized the event, added, "Our team did a phenomenal job of reaching out to family members​, professors and friends to help raise a significant amount of money for this worthy cause. The Lenawee County group was so excited to have the Adrian College varsity synchronized and figure skating teams participate as we bring a lot of energy and enthusiasm. One of our favorite parts was connecting with the community that gives so much to us."
