and create 'Angels for Alzheimers'

The entire school body at G. C. Huston Public School in Southampton learned about Alzheimers on Friday (Jan.23rd) and what it could feel like for someone with the disease.

Organized by Alzheimers' 2015 'Walk for Memories Coordinator, Jodi Eagleson, the students were asked to lay quietly as she asked them to image what it must be like to have some of the symptoms of Alzheimers so that they might have a better understanding in the event a family member incurs the illness.

It was also a fundraiser by donation for the Alzheimers Society and all monies raised locally stay in the community.

Once the exercise was over, it was outside for everyone where the entire school made 'snow Angels for Alzheimers'.

A final total amount raised is yet to be tallied.

The 2015 final winter Walk for Memories will be held Saturday, January 31st in various venues throughout Grey and Bruce.
