Monticello, NY and Newburgh, NY – Resorts World Catskills (RWC) and Resorts World Hudson Valley (RWHV) announced today a team of their employees took part in the Alzheimer’s Association Hudson Valley Chapter’s Subzero Heroes event on Saturday, February 25, jumping into a chilly Berean Lake in Highland, NY. The event, now in its 13th year, helps support the organization’s goals of advancing research for the prevention, cure and treatment of Alzheimer’s disease and provides support and assistance to the millions of people living with Alzheimer’s and their families.
“The bravery of our employees is nothing compared to those who are living with Alzheimer’s disease,” said Meghan Taylor, Vice President Government Affairs and Public Relations, Resorts World New York. “They and their caregivers and loved ones are the real heroes but it certainly warmed our hearts to be able to make even a small difference in their lives by participating in this fundraiser and serving as a Platinum Sponsor for the event.”
“Alzheimer’s is a devastating disease not only for the individuals living with it, but also for their families,” said Lisa Kaurich, Director of Development, Alzheimer’s Association – Hudson Valley Chapter. “The generosity of companies like Resorts World is greatly appreciated and will be used to help provide quality care and support to those who are living with dementia, while also funding research aimed at ending the disease for good.”
So far, the event has brought in more than $68 thousand. Donations will be accepted through Monday, March 20.
