GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Oak Hammock held on Thursday its annual Walk to End Alzheimer’s, where residents and staff from the senior living community gather to raise money and awareness for the disease. With the weather below 50 degrees at the start of the walk, the event moved indoors, and the several dozen participants wound their way around the campus buildings to complete the loop.
Donations from residents and staff members continued to come in throughout the walk and the weekend.
At noon, Oak Hammock CEO Kevin Ahmadi and other staff members joined University of Florida baseball head coach Kevin O’Sullivan and some of the team members for a check presentation of $5,100 to the Alzheimer’s Association. Oak Hammock pledged $50 for every homerun a Gator hit last season when the squad hit 121 dingers.
