On Saturday September 20th, Infinity Institute participated in the Walk to End Alzheimer’s at Liberty State Park in Jersey City. Since the birth of the school in 2010, attending the Walk to End Alzheimer’s, under the leadership of Nurse Ramos, has been a tradition revered and commemorated by the students, faculty, staff, and families coming together. Many students look forward to the annual affair and consider it the first big social event of the school year.

As per tradition, history teacher Mr. Bruce Peterson proudly carried the school’s banner leading the spirited group of students, staff, and family. Individuals that attended the walk came and enjoyed their time while spreading awareness about Alzheimer’s. Students also interacted with other children who came from other towns, cities and states. Infinity Institute Alumni John Saleb and Joshua Aziz even came to show their support.

This year Infinity sported bright yellow and red custom t-shirts to help raise awareness and donate proceeds to the cause. That day, everyone shared noticeable smiles. Brandon Ramdayal was excited to document the day by recording the delighted reactions and happy expressions of the Infinity family crossing the finish line.

This year Infinity Institute happily raised close to $3,000 to donate to the Alzheimer’s Association. Infinity takes pride in being more than school but a big family always willing to lend a helping hand — like Ms. Dobson says,” We are a school that has a heart.”
