Students in the newly created Employment Skills Academy on the Campus at Virginia Randolph put together close to 2,000 pinwheel flowers for The Hope Garden for the Walk to End Alzheimer’s taking place in Richmond. ESA is a collaborative program working with the ACE Center to focus on job skills for students with disabilities. Each color flower represents a different way that people, or families have been affected by Alzheimer’s.
Blue flower: Someone living with Alzheimer’s or another dementia.
Purple flower: An individual who has lost someone to the disease.
Yellow flower: A person who is currently supporting or caring for someone living with Alzheimer’s.
Orange flower: A participant who supports the cause and the Association’s vision of a world without Alzheimer’s and other dementia.
Great job ESA students!
