COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) -- Nearly a dozen cars paraded through senior care communities this weekend, honking for hope.
Charlotte Long, the Regional Development Manager for the Alzheimer's Association, helped orchestrate the event. This is their second 'honk for hope' parade of the year.
Seniors are some of the most at-risk and highly vulnerable populations amid the coronavirus pandemic. In Colorado, 89% of all COVID-19 cases are reported in people aged 60 years and older (click here for more data).
'Honk for hope' seeks to brighten the senior's day and bring smiles to their faces. Long says they caravaned throughout senior care communities from 9:30 a.m. until 12 p.m. Saturday morning.
