Kentucky Farm Bureau partners with the Alzheimer’s Association

The Kentucky Farm Bureau ALZStars team has raised nearly $77,000 for the Alzheimer’s Association since their partnership began in 2014.

More than 5 million Americans are currently living with Alzheimer’s Disease. Among that group are 90,000 people who reside in Kentucky and Southern Indiana. That is why the Kentucky Farm Bureau (KBF) is proud to support efforts to end the disease.

KFB began its partnership with The Alzheimer’s Association - Greater Kentucky and Southern Indiana Chapter in 2014. The organization helps lead the way to end Alzheimer’s and all other dementia by dedicating themselves to research, driving risk reduction and early detection, and maximizing quality care and support.

“Everything we do is employee-driven here at Kentucky Farm Bureau,” said Nicki Whitmire, KFB Insurance’s Vice President of Human Resources and Support Services. “Certainly the Walk to End Alzheimer’s is a great way for our folks to engage and raise money with people that they’re committed to in the community.’

There are over 600 different Walk to End Alzheimer’s events taking place in 2023 nationwide, and it serves as the world’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support, and research.

“We love working with the Kentucky Farm Bureau,’ said Shannon White, who serves as chapter executive for the organization’s Greater Kentucky and Southern Indiana Chapter. “We don’t have to do much to get Kentucky Farm Bureau people excited to support our organization.”
