Hingham, MA -- A little rain didn't stop people who live and work at Linden Ponds in Hingham from coming together to walk in the on-campus Memory Walk in support of the Alzheimer's Association and raising over $11,000.
"This is the 2nd year in a row we hosted the on-campus Memory Walk in support of the Alzheimer's Association and even though it was a rainy day, people still attended," said Mairi Bleakie, Philanthropy Manager, Linden Ponds. "Not only did people bundle up and walk outside but many also walked inside Linden Ponds! It was a wonderful day."
