What do I wear?
If you intend on setting up or taking down decorations, we suggest you wear casual clothes. We encourage that you dress up for the dance, as it will make the experience that much more fun for the us and the residents! If you plan on setting up, but you want to dress up, there will be time for you to change clothes at the facility.

There's more to do than dance!
At this event, there will also be games and a photo booth.

This event is a great opportunity to get service hours and GER Club membership hours! Feel free to bring your friends, significant others, and/or families.

If you intend on going to this event, please contact Morgan Brown at Brown6128@live.missouristate.edu to let us know what shifts you will attend (or if you'll be there for the entire time, which you are more than welcome to do).

The end of Alzheimer's disease starts here.

AT LEAST FIVE MILLION FOUR HUNDRED THOUSAND PEOPLE IN AMERICA SUFFER FROM ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE. Their FIFTEEN MILLION CAREGIVERS are giving up their jobs, benefits, opportunities for promotions and raises, and their social lives to care for these individuals.

Healthcare for people with AD will cost 236 BILLION DOLLARS in 2016 ALONE! 

Sadly, these are not the worst effects of this disease. It destroys memories, families, and millions of lives. Alzheimer's is the SIXTH LEADING CAUSE OF DEATH IN AMERICA.

TOGETHER WE CAN FIGHT ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE! If you can spare a few dollars, please click on the link below to donate:
