Brightview Avondell, Brightview Bel Air and Brightview Perry Hall senior living communities are teaming up for our third annual Age Is Just a # 5K Run/Walk. Brightview Avondell features Independent Living and Assisted Living, Brightview Bel Air features Assisted Living and Wellspring Village®, Brightview’s innovative program and specialized environment for people with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia and Brightview Perry Hall provides the full continuum including Independent Living, Assisted Living and Wellspring Village®. Brightview has been proudly serving Baltimore area residents since 1999. 100% of the proceeds from the Age Is Just a # 5K Run/Walk event will benefit Harford County’s Office on Aging’s Senior Emergency Fund which was established to assist eligible senior citizens in Harford County who find themselves in difficult circumstances with no other resources on which to rely. Senior Emergency Funds have made a difference in the quality of life and independence for many older Harford Countians.
