Welcome to My Personal Page
Lilly is 4 years old and is walking to raise money for the Alzheimer's Association in honor of her great-grandmother Nanny. Lilly is one of Nanny's 21 great-grandchildren. Nanny may not remember who they are but her life long love of kids if very evident when you see her light up when they walk through the door.
Lilly and the littlest of great-grandchildren have had two lemonade stands prior to this entry on 5/15/14 and have already raised over $1000 with their stand. They have plans on selling much more lemonade this summer. The kids have a blast selling all while learning a great lesson in giving back. We can't wait to see what they raise by the walk in September.
When asked what the money is for Lilly will tell you that it is for the people who are sick with Alzheimer's. She will tell you that sometimes Nanny forgets her name or that she already gave her hugs and kisses but she knows that Nanny never forgets she loves her. We are so glad that Lilly has been able to spend time with Nanny and learn what a special loving person she is. As Nanny slips away from us, it is heartwarming to know that Lilly is old enough that she will always have a memory of her time with Nanny.
Last year Lilly was one of the top money raisers on our walk team which was our team's first year. She would get excited each time we logged on and the status bar deonoting her level of money had been colored in more. At three years old she was going door to door and asking for sponsors on her own. She would say " my name is Lilly and I am doing a chairty walk for Alzheimer's would you like to sponsor me" She raised over $250. This year her goal is a donation from every state. Can you please help us? She has her map ready to mark off each state as they come in. We are so proud that at such a young age she has such a giving nature. Thanks for your help
