The Alzheimer’s Association Connecticut Chapter is pleased to announce that Michelle Caprio will chair the 2020 Greater New Haven Walk to End Alzheimer’s.
“My Mother passed away at age 70 from several complications including early onset dementia. It was extremely difficult to see her become so sickly and watch her pass away. She was our rock,” Caprio says. “I am beyond humbled to be Chair of the Greater New Haven Walk to End Alzheimer’s to raise awareness and funds for such an important cause.”
Born and raised in West Haven, Caprio enjoys being part of a strong community. She was PTA President in several schools, ran a health and wellness fair for elementary-aged students and their families, founded and organized a Day of Caring at the First Congregational Church of West Haven and gathers hats, gloves and gift cards to give to homeless and insecure families. This will be her 8th year taking part in the Walk to End Alzheimer’s.
The Alzheimer’s Association Greater New Haven Walk to End Alzheimer’s will take place on Sept. 27 at Lighthouse Point Park in New Haven.
