is fundraising to honor:
all those facing Alzheimer's
On Sep 8th I’m hiking 19 miles, from the South rim of the Grand Canyon, down to the Colorado River at the bottom, and back to the rim, to honor those affected by Alzheimer’s Disease, and to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.
Today, over 35 million people across the world are living with Alzheimer's, including more than 5 million Americans. In the U.S. alone, more than 15 million caregivers generously dedicate themselves to those with Alzheimer's and dementia. To date, over 60 of you have honored me with the opportunity to carry the names of your loved ones who are either currently suffering, or that have passed, due to Alzheimer’s, on dog tags around my neck, during my hike. They’re my growing team, and their names will echo off the walls of the Grand Canyon, as I pray for each by name, during my journey. If you haven't shared the name of someone struggling with this incurable Disease, please do, and If you feel compelled to, please help me reach my goal of 10K to the Alzheimer’s Association. AD kills more people than breast and prostate cancer COMBINED. But where are the purple baseball bats? The purple basketball shoes, sweatbands and the like? Pink rules, and its wonderful that people support that cause, but it pales to the growing devastation of Alzheimers. Maybe we don't give it much attention because it happens to "old" people. Well I'm here to tell you thats not the whole story, and, most of us are gonna be those "old" people one day, if we aren't already. It doesn't have to stay this way. We may not see a cure for ourselves or our loved ones currently suffering, but I pray we can make a difference for our children and grandchildren. Thanks again for your support and/or consideration. 2 Cor 12:7-10
