National Highlight and Recognition

Girl power: Amazing Grace Women and the National Campaign about Alzheimer’s

AlzheimHer group
Members of the Amazing Grace Chorus were featured in a video and promotion of the national AlzheimHER’s chorus campaign.

The national campaign, AlzheimHER’s Chorus, a vocal group made of women living with the disease or affected by Alzheimer’s, is a collaborative effort of the Alzheimer’s Association and Maria Shriver’s Women’s Alzheimer’s Movement. Female members of WAI Amazing Grace Chorus® joined this national campaign to increase understanding about Alzheimer’s impact on women, with the goal of raising awareness that two-thirds of people living with Alzheimer’s are women.

The Amazing Grace Chorus® was filmed performing, and that video is part of the national campaign:

Sponsors for AlzheimHER’s Chorus include GSD&M Advertising Agency and the National Alzheimer’s Association. Local sponsors are Bader Philanthropies Inc. and the Wisconsin Alzheimer’s Institute Regional Milwaukee Office. Find out more at alz.org/raiseyourvoice.
