2016 Fayetteville Walk to End Alzheimer's

This year will be the 6th annual Walk hosted and sponsored by McKee Homes in Fayetteville, NC and the second year the Walk will be held at JP Riddle Stadium, home of the Swamp Dogs minor leage baseball team.

Last year's Walk to End Alzheimer’s in Fayetteville, N.C. was the highest attended Walk so far, raising over $81,000 to support Alzheimer's Association® initiatives, which include Alzheimer's care and research, and raising awareness of this devastating disease. Over 800 people and 64 teams showed up to support the event last year. Thanks to all the volunteers and staff who helped the event run smoothly.

Julie Russo and Pat McKee of McKee Homes started the first Fayetteville Walk to End Alzheimer’s in 2011. Since then the Fayetteville Walks have raised over $250,000.

We have several fun activities planned for kids of all ages this year including; Champion for the Children, who dress up in super hero and princess costumes, face painting, bounce house, Carolina Selfie Stick, dance performances and an ROTC Color Guard.

We have raised just over 50% of our revenue goal of $104,500 for 2016. There are some events planned between now and then to help us reach that goal.

OUR MISSION

To utilize our resources and good fortune to support the Alzheimer’s cause in the greater Fayetteville area by raising awareness of this devastating disease, supporting initiatives of the Alzheimer’s Association® and helping fund Alzheimer’s care and research.

Helping Hits Home

Pat McKee, of McKee Homes, is all too familiar with the impact Alzheimer’s has on those who have the disease as well as their loved ones. Pat’s father, Joe, succumbed after a ten-year battle with this devastating disease. While Joe McKee had a long and successful career in business, he also built personal homes for his family. Alzheimer’s robbed him of his dream of one day becoming a builder. When Pat McKee and his brother, Mike, formed McKee Homes – to focus on building homes at The Cottages at North Ramsey and throughout the Fayetteville area – they dedicated the company to the memory of their father.

The McKee family – Pat, Mike and their mother, Shirley – wanted to do more to honor a beloved father and husband. In the hope that one day other families may not have to face the heartbreak wreaked by Alzheimer’s, they established the Joe McKee Memorial Alzheimer Fund. A percentage of every home sale by McKee Homes goes into this fund to support Alzheimer’s research and care. In addition, the McKees work closely with the Eastern North Carolina Service Area of the Alzheimer’s Association®, supporting efforts such as the Walk to End Alzheimer’s™.
