SPARTA — For the third year in row, the Blessed Kateri Columbian Squires Circle #5177 walking team from Sparta participated in the 2011 “Walk to End Alzheimer’s” sponsored by the New Jersey Alzheimer’s Association. Deputy Chief Squire Frank Cutrone led his walking team at Liberty State Park in Jersey City. The team consisted of Bursar Squire Ben Insley, Squires Michael and Matthew Dolecki, Matthew Brennan, Dominick Bartolomeo, and Jon Zachok. Grand Knight Nick Cutrone, Knight Mike Dolecki, along with parents Toni Dolecki and Steve Insley joined the team on a frigid and rainy October day. The walk began with opening ceremonies at the historic Jersey City Rail Terminal and continued along the riverfront. Through their efforts, the Squire team raised over $1,200 that was donated to support the caregiver respite program of the New Jersey chapter. Over 350,000 people suffer from Alzheimer’s disease in the state of New Jersey. NJ Alzheimer’s Vice President Ken Zaentz thanked the Blessed Kateri Squires for their outstanding efforts and to the Knights of Columbus for their ongoing commitment to supporting the Alzheimer’s Association.
