Host Recognized as Top Fundraising Team at Walk to End Alzheimer's – Washington, D.C.

11/06/2019
This year, Host Hotels & Resorts’ employees selected Walk to End Alzheimer's – Washington, D.C. for our company-sponsored walk. The 2019 Walk Committee, made up of employee volunteers, organized various fundraising events including a cupcake sale and internal online auction to raise funds and awareness. Through proceeds from these events, in addition to company contributions and PTO donated by employees, Host surpassed its goal, raising over $100,000 for the Alzheimer’s Association. Host was the top fundraiser for the 2019 Walk to End Alzheimer’s – Washington, D.C., one of the top 10 fundraising teams in the country and the top fundraising team in the Washington, D.C. walk history. 

“Thanks to the generous support of Host and our employees, we were the #1 walk team in the history of the Alzheimer’s Association National Capital Area Chapter,” said Walk Committee Co-chair Karen Schramm. “It was a pleasure to work with a team so dedicated to our mission of raising awareness and money for Alzheimer’s. Together, we walked to keep their memories alive.”

On October 12, Host employees, family and friends participated in the Walk to End Alzheimer's on the National Mall.
