Maddie Smith, The Maples’ part-time concierge and daughter of our Executive Director, Kim Smith, was selected Youth Ambassador for the Greater Baltimore Walk to End Alzheimer’s. Maddie is the Captain of The Maples’ team, Sole Survivors.

Her interest in working for a cure for ALZ arose from relationships she has developed with The Maples’ residents. A recent article in the Towson Times talks about how Maddie has recruited friends at Towson High School to comprise a “Cheer Brigade” to thank walkers at the finish line.

The Greater Baltimore Walk will be held on Saturday, October 31 at Rash Field in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor.
