Walk to End Alzheimer's


Why do we do so much to give back to Lafayette and the surrounding area? We value our customers and our community. We wouldn't be successful without you, so we want to show you and the community the same appreciation. With that in mind, we try to select organizations with goals that align with ours: improving quality of life, encourage healthy lifestyles, and investing in our youth.

Last year, we chose to focus on the Walk to End Alzheimer's and had a lot of success! We won Rookie of the Year for our efforts. We have decided to focus our fundraising efforts on Alzheimer's again this year. We do several things around the dealership involving our vendors, staff, and customers in order to raise funds for this terrible disease. The donations made for the walk help the organization do several things. Twenty-three percent of the funds go towards staffing the organization. The organization has social workers that help consult the affected families in order to help them through the process. A lot goes into it, I mean A LOT. The remaining seventy-seven percent go to research to find a cure. Currently there is no cure for Alzheimer's, meaning that they have not found a way to stop or reverse its effects. Alzheimer's is a disease that affects not only the victim but family and friends as well. Help us join the fight! Reach out to btaylor@defouw.com if you would like to get involved, donate, or join our team for the walk on September 29th!
