On September 7, Pioneer Manor staff and residents attended the
Color to Cure Huntington’s Disease 5K Color Run/Walk.
Activity Aides Marla Russell and Diana Steinlicht brought and assisted the residents who have Huntington’s Disease while they participated in the 5K, and enjoyed soaking themselves in a rainbow color, and another resident attended just to participate in the cause. Pioneer Manor resident family members also participated, with one family member traveling from Vermillion, South Dakota to attend.
The Gillette group Care to Cure HD announced the residents as VIP attendees as they crossed the finish line.
“The look on our residents' faces when they crossed the finish line was worth the effort and work it took. Our residents had a blast and can’t wait for the next walk,” said Diana.
About 300 people attended the event, and there were 60 volunteers. Care to Cure HD—Wyoming’s goal is to educate, spread awareness, and raise money to donate to research for Huntington’s Disease, with the hopes of finding a cure for the disease.
