On Saturday, October 2nd, eFulfillment Service took part in Traverse City’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s. The company, which provides quality careers in e-commerce fulfillment to folks in Traverse City and all across Northern Michigan, raised more than $1,000 to combat the deadly disease.
This is not the first time eFulfillment Service has stepped up to raise money and give back to a worthy cause. The company has a proven track record when it comes to working with charitable organizations, and has enriched countless Northern Michigan families with their annual holiday donations. They also make sure to keep their staff smiling with regular fun events, from pig roasts to dodgeball tournaments.
The eFulfillment Memory Makers showed up to the Traverse City Open Space on a sunny fall afternoon, several of whom were outfitted in purple, the official color of the Walk to End Alzheimer’s. In-person participants included Ann Carpenter, Ronnie Freet, Jennifer Robinson, Drew Boggemes and Merry Hawley. It was the perfect way to make the most of an unseasonably warm Northern Michigan day: after all, what’s better than a brisk stroll along Grand Traverse Bay while also spreading awareness and raising funds for a great cause?
Throughout the Walk, a symphony of supportive honks from passers-by could be heard. It was a moving display of solidarity and illustrated just how many people have been impacted by Alzheimer’s.
Each walker held high flowers of various colors, symbolizing the perseverance of loved ones in the face of Alzheimer’s: a purple flower went to those who have lost someone to the disease, blue represented those who are actively living with it, yellow was for the caregivers, and orange for everyone else who participated.
Once the walk to the Senior Center and back was completed, each flower was placed in the Promise Garden, which created a powerful visual of the myriad ways Alzheimer’s affects us all. Finally, a single white flower was set down to convey a message of hope: that, someday, once a cure for the disease has been found, every survivor of Alzheimer’s will be able to place one of their own in the garden.
Ultimately, it was a successful first year of Walking to End Alzheimer’s for the eFulfillment Memory Makers.
