A special recognition award was presented by the Alzheimer’s Association – North Central Texas Chapter to The Stayton at Museum Way, a retirement community, for supporting the ALZ Stars team, which raises money for the association as annual participants in Fort Worth’s Cowtown Marathon. Each year since the team’s formation in 2013, The Stayton serves the team a fabulous pasta dinner on a day leading up to the race to help energize and encourage the ALZ Stars team of runners and walkers. The dinner also serves as an opportunity for team fellowship, as many of the team members are either reuniting or meeting for the first time. In addition, The Stayton supports other Alzheimer’s Association initiatives and activities including sponsorships of the chapter’s signature fundraiser, the Walk to End Alzheimer’s, as well as the annual Spring Symposium which provides education to caregivers and health care professionals in North Central Texas. Last year, residents also produced “The Stayton Cooks to End Alzheimer’s” cookbook to raise funds for the organization.
