Walk To End Alzheimer's

More than 430 colleagues, friends and family members exceeded our engagement and fundraising goals as part of Point32Health's Walk to End Alzheimer's team. With a match from the Foundation, this year’s total contribution to support critical Alzheimer's Association's programs, advocacy and research tops $200,000. Since 2012, our teams have raised more than $1.6 million to support the Alzheimer’s Association’s work. Every dollar raised and every champion of the cause provides hope and takes us one step closer toward a world without the disease. Together, we can end Alzheimer's.

Black History Month Collage


Recognizing Black History And Black Voices

Corporate Citizenship Manager Henocson "Henny" Mulatre had his own unique way of celebrating Black History Month: each day he wore a different sweatshirt to raise awareness and stimulate conversation. "This represents the appreciation and acknowledgment of Blackness and how it infuses all aspects of society," said Henny. "With the outward exhibited forms of affection and love during the month of February, it has been a pleasure to reflect on why I’m so proud to be Black."
