OneFamily's Walk Donation Page
Dear friends, please help support our team, OneFamily, to help those currently impacted by Alzheimer's and for the fight to realize Alzheimer’s first survivor!
The Nashville community pulled together in 2017 as the 7th ranked national team to show their commitment to fight this disease, which has no cure or known way to halt its progression. On Saturday October 27th, 2018 the Nashville community will again be one of those national communities teaming-up for Fall walks to fight Alzheimer’s disease. As part OneFamily, we have been touched by losing multiple loved ones to this disease and as the Alzheimer Walk Committee Recruitment Team Chair we will be walking and asking for your support to help in this fight to find a cure and support those currently impacted by it. This walk represents our family honoring the memory of family and friends who battled this disease, including my father Henry, my aunt Josephine Cummings, Barbara Satala, Marge Noettl, uncle Bill Cummings, Betty Schaeffer, Hugh/Maureen N., Bettye McMillan S., and a dear Aunt who continues to battle dementia.
Currently, Alzheimer’s is 6th leading cause of death and the only one in the top 10 in America that can’t be prevented, cured, or even slowed. But what if one day it could be cured? By participating in the Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s® — the world’s largest fundraiser to fight the disease — you can help make that beautiful day happen and change the course of these trends related to Alzheimer’s. Over prior year numbers, trends continue to increase and therefore your help is even more critical:
- In this country alone, someone develops Alzheimer’s every 65 seconds and currently more than 5 million Americans are living with the disease
- In 2018, Alzheimer's will cost the United States $277 billion. This number is expected to rise to over $1.1 trillion by 2050
- In 2017, 15.9 million American caregivers provided an estimated 18.4 billion hours of unpaid care valued at $232 billion
Please consider donating to our team today for this fight and join us for Walk to End Alzheimer’s in Nashville on Saturday, October 27th at Walk of Fame Park.

Together, we will end Alzheimer’s disease!
