Eden Prairie, MN, September 16, 2014 –LTCG, the recognized leader in business process outsourcing for long term care and other insurers, has raised over $43,000 for the Alzheimer’s Association this year.
LTCG is a Champion Sponsor for the Alzheimer’s Association, meaning it raises over $25,000 annually. It is also a “Speed Racer” sponsor for the 2014 Twin Cities Walk to End Alzheimer’s, which will take place on Saturday, September 27 at Target Field. Over 7,000 participants in the Twin Cities will join together, learn about Alzheimer’s disease, raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research, and get involved with this critical mission to end this devastating disease.
Led by a group of employee volunteers, the LTCG Twin Cities Walk team is currently the #7 team in the nation for funds raised to date. It has achieved this status through individual fundraising and hosting events, including the 7th annual Golf to End Alzheimer’s tournament at Majestic Oaks Country Club in Ham Lake, MN.
“I have participated in many tournaments that have promoted different causes, but this tournament is something special,” said Rick Johnson, an LTCG employee from Eden Prairie, MN. “The important part of the day comes when I see that final check given to the Alzheimer’s Association representatives. The smiles and the appreciation for a job well done is great to see.”
Over the past five years, the company has raised over $260,000 for the Alzheimer’s Association.
