Together, We Can End Alzheimer’s

Did you Know?

The McKee Homes Alzheimer’s Mission includes sponsoring four North Carolina Walk’s to End Alzheimer’s. The Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s is the world’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research. This event is held annually in more than 600 communities nationwide, with more than 500,000 participants.

Our Why

The McKee family is all too familiar with the impact Alzheimer’s has on those who have the disease as well as their loved ones. In hopes that one day other families may not have to face the heartbreak by Alzheimer’s, the McKee family created the Joe McKee Memorial Alzheimer Fund to remember their beloved father and husband. In addition to supporting efforts such as the Walk to End Alzheimer’s, a percentage of every home sale by McKee Homes goes into the Joe McKee fund to support Alzheimer’s research.

McKee Homes Alzheimer’s Mission

The McKee Homes Alzheimer’s Mission statement is to passionately enrich the quality of life of individuals in our communities by helping the Alzheimer’s Association’s accomplish their vision, which is, A World Without Alzheimer’s.

NC Walk to End Alzheimer’s

Over the years, McKee Homes has drastically increased our Walk to End Alzheimer’s Results, but this year will be one to remember. McKee Homes was able to raise awareness for the Walk to End Alzheimer’s through virtual videos and socially distanced walks. Over the year, McKee Homes held four North Carolina walks and received 20 local sponsors across Fayetteville, Pinehurst, Wilmington and Raleigh. Team McKee and our McKee Sponsors raised $82,000 in 2020.

McKee Homes Sponsors Fayetteville Woodpeckers Alzheimer’s Awareness Night

McKee Homes is excited to be a part of minor-league baseballs’ return to Fayetteville, NC and will sponsor the Fayetteville Woodpeckers 2019 Alzheimer’s Awareness night on July 27th, 2019.

It’s no secret that Fayetteville Woodpeckers inaugural season has created a lot of excitement in Fayetteville, NC! It’s no surprise really, the team has given Fayetteville a good reason to be excited. The Fayetteville Woodpeckers are the Class A affiliate of the 2017 World Series Champions: the Houston Astros. Recently the team moved into their new home, Segra Stadium, in Cool Springs District of downtown Fayetteville. With its headquarters located just blocks from Segra Stadium, McKee Homes was excited to see how the team would impact the community. The proximity of Segra Stadium to McKee’s home base, and the Fayetteville Woodpeckers’ desire to increase Alzheimer’s awareness, made McKee’s sponsorship of their Alzheimer’s Awareness night a natural pairing. On this night, McKee Homes will help the team “Paint the Park Purple” to increase Alzheimer’s Awareness in the Fayetteville, NC community.

A Cause that Hits Home

Spreading awareness about Alzheimer’s Disease is near and dear to McKee Homes. Owner Pat McKee is all too familiar with the impact Alzheimer’s has on those afflicted 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 personally built new homes for his family. Alzheimer’s robbed him of his dream of one day becoming a new home builder. When Pat and his brother Mike formed McKee Homes, they dedicated the company to the memory of their father. In hopes that one day other families will not have to face the heartbreak caused by Alzheimer’s disease, 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.

Alzheimer’s Awareness is incredibly important because early detection is key in receiving beneficial and appropriate treatment. Often, people impacted by Alzheimer’s disease are diagnosed too late and miss the opportunity to receive the best possible treatment. By increasing awareness in its community, McKee Homes hopes to help create a World Without Alzheimer’s.
