TerpSys named a Washington Monument by the Alzheimer's Association® National Capital Area Chapter
(Rockville, Maryland) - TerpSys has been recognized as one of six Washington Monuments by the Alzheimer's Association® National Capital Area Chapter for 2012. TerpSys and the other five nominees were recognized at the Washington Monuments Luncheon held at the Grand Hyatt in Washington, DC to “honor individuals / organizations making a significant difference in the fight against Alzheimer’s.”
Per the Alzheimer's Association® National Capital Area Chapter, “the Washington Monuments Luncheon, hosted by the Chapter's Board of Directors, replaces the Women’s Luncheon, held in 2010 and 2011. We celebrate the contributions of the women and corporations honored at that event and consider them a part of the distinguished group of Monuments we have been privileged to honor since 1994.” The mission of the Alzheimer’s Association® is “To eliminate Alzheimer’s disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health.”
Susan Cherney, Vice President, Development, Alzheimer’s Association® National Capital Area Chapter said, "On behalf of all of those people and their families, my deepest respect and gratitude for everything you continue to do year after year after year. I know it requires a special kind of tenacity, endurance, passion, and heart to sustain that level of commitment — all of which you and everyone involved at TerpSys has — not just for the Alzheimer's cause, but for many other people who have different kinds of needs.”
“It has been said that “everything happens for a reason. The loss of my mother helped begin TerpSys’ longtime partnership with the Alzheimer’s Association. It has been amazing to see how our efforts have grown over the years and the impact that we have been able to make, not only in the fight against Alzheimer’s, but in the community as a whole.” stated Tim Kerns, Chair of TerpSys’ Community Service Committee.
