Melisa's Walk Donation Page
I'm 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.
As you know, my mama had this terrible disease. She fought so hard, but the disease was just too much for her and she died January 21, 2017. I'm walking so that researchers can find a cure for this disease before any other families have to go through what we did.
Last year was our first participation in this event and our team raised over $1,500! We had 17 people walk to represent our team and our youngest member was 3 months old! We also had a great time. It is a fun event and definitely a way to honor those we have lost to this disease.
This years walk is October 14, 2018. We'd love to have an even bigger team this year! Please join us!
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!
