Southern Maryland Boot Scooters
For the past two years, the Southern Maryland Boot Scooters have participated in the local Walk to End Alzheimer's in Charles County, MD. In 2016, we raised more than $5000. In 2017, we increased our fundraising efforts, and we raised $18,724! We were the top performing team for the Charles County walk! We plan to participate again this year on September 8 and hope to exceed that total. With your help, we can reach our goal!
You can help us in our effort to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer's care, support, and research by visiting our team page for the 2018 Walk to End Alzheimer's. You can make a donation or you can join our team!
We also are seeking donations of products, items, gift cards, etc. for our various raffles and silent auctions. If you would like to donate, please see our information letter.
