For the 10th consecutive year, Fordham students traveled by Ram Van to White Plains on Sept. 25 and joined 1,500 walkers to participate in the Annual Hudson Valley Alzheimer’s Memory Walk. The event raises money and awareness of the disease that afflicts more than five million Americans and their families.

Pictured above, Phil Bedard, Megan Czachor, Katharine Dixon, and Itunu Ademoyo, members of Fordham’s Circle K service organization, celebrate their completion of the race.

The Fordham students were accompanied by Rosemary DeJulio, Ph.D., and Gabelli School staff adviser Susan Brucculeri, two members of Fordham Kiwanis who sponsor Circle K service projects at Murray Weigel Hall and the Rose Hill Apartments.

Fordham representatives helped the event raise over $450,000.
