Ulster BOCES Students Help Fight Against Alzheimer’s

HIGHLAND – Students in the Ulster BOCES Pre-University/New Visions Health Career Exploration program took a polar plunge of their own last month in Highland’s Lake Berean to help fund research for a cure to Alzheimer’s disease. This was the fifth year that students in the program — who come from Ellenville, Rondout, Wallkill, New Paltz and various other school districts — have taken part in the fundraiser, and this year’s event was their most successful yet, with the group raising over $5,000 for the cause. The event was hosted, as it is every year, in conjunction with the Hudson Valley / Rockland / Westchester New York chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association. "People typically develop Alzheimer’s after 65 years old, but there’s also early onset. I think we need to raise awareness so that more research can be done and we can find a cure," said Journye MacDonald, from the Saugerties School District.
