2013 Walk to End Alzheimer's Greater Boston Walk - Cambridge, MA
Actors and Artists Unite- Boston
Come join me and this wonderful National team of Actors, Industry Colleagues, Friends and Family for the very first Actors and Artists Unite Boston team walk on Sunday, September 29th in beautiful Canal Park. "We take care of our own"- that is the foundation of this team. I founded the team Actors and Artists Unite to End Alzheimer's in 2011 in honor of my mom who was diagnosed in 2009 and my dad who was her primary caregiver. Actors and Artists Unite was founded to create a community of support, guidance and compassion for anyone who has a loved one with Alzheimer's. DCMetroArts.com, Backstage.com and Broadwayworld.com hailed our team and actors across the country responded- "I'm walking in Virginia! I'm walking in Chicago!" As we walked the course across the country, other actors saw our signs and ran up to us-"I'm an actor, too! Can I walk with you?" We were walking in glory. In 2013, we decided to become a national team and in honor of that, we decided to expand our team name to better reflect the actors, writers, directors, stage managers, production crew, colleagues, friends and families that make up this amazing team across the country. We changed the name from Actors Unite to Actors and Artists Unite to End Alzheimer's. Anyone can create their own team under our national team name in any citry that has a Walk to End Alzheimer's.
Sadly- my mom died of Alzheimer's on May 8th, 2012 and as both my dad and my priests said- "You have been carrying this torch- and now- you must run with it." So- join us- actors, artists, colleagues, friends and family- as we run with this torch to bring about a cure in our lifetime. Sunday, September 29th in Canal Park. Registration begins at 8:30 AM Opening and Remembrance Ceremony begin at 9:30 AM and the 2 or 6 mile walk begins from 8:30-10 AM.
When Actors and Artists Unite, the world can shift. As we Irish say, Slainte!
In loving solidarity-
