Sarah's Walk Donation Page
Through donations and/or participation in this walk, we invite family and friends to join us in honoring our amazing mom and wife, Jan Gerkensmeyer. Although the path towards her Alzheimer's diagnosis over the past few years has been painful and rough, she has maintained the strength to find grace and beauty in any moment. From her vibrant gardens, to her heart-felt friendships, to her powerful poetry presentations at recent conferences, and even to an extraordinary connection with a local herd of deer, Jan brings light to so many blessed individuals.
We are leading the way to Alzheimer's first survivor by participating in the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's®. Currently, more than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer's and that number is expected to grow to as many as 16 million by 2050. Our future is at risk unless we can find a way to change the course of this disease.
Together, we can end Alzheimer's disease. Please make a donation to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.
Thank you for joining the fight against Alzheimer's!
Sarah, Dave, Amy, and Angie
