Orien Reid-Nix is a living legend—and an unmistaken visionary—in the fight against Alzheimer’s disease. The Philadelphia region is truly proud to call Orien its own. You may know Orien from her days as KYW-TV and WCAU-TV consumer reporter. The Alzheimer’s community knows her as an impassioned family caregiver who cared for her mother, grandmother, aunt and uncle who lived with dementia. She is also the driving force that established the Philadelphia Memory Walk in 1991—one of the first of a handful of Memory Walks, and predecessor to what is now the Walk to End Alzheimer’s®…of which there are more than 600 across the country. There’s no doubt we’ve made Orien proud that the first Philadelphia Memory Walk has grown to become the largest revenue-generating Walk in the United States!

 

Orien’s passion for finding a cure for Alzheimer’s and caring for families of dementia goes well beyond the Walk. In addition to sharing her time and talents as a member of the Alzheimer’s Association Delaware Valley Chapter board, Orien has served as Chairman of the national board of directors of the Alzheimer’s Association and is also a former board chair of Alzheimer’s Disease International.

 

By establishing Orien’s Team, the Delaware Valley Chapter strives to honor the tremendous work of Philadelphia’s own quintessential Alzheimer’s caregiver, advocate and friend. Please donate today to show your love for Orien’s passion for our mission: a world without Alzheimer’s disease.
