I am participating in the Walk to End Alzheimer's because I am committed to raising awareness and funds in the fight against the nation's sixth-leading cause of death. As many of you know, my mother, Marilyn, passed away in 1991 from early onset Alzheimer's disease. My dear sister, Marcia, also lost her life in 2015 to this same illness at the age of 66. The end of Alzheimer's starts with me, but I can't do it alone. I am forming my team again this year, "Golden Goldberg's", in memory of my mother and sister. Please join my team, walk with Bill and I, and help us to raise donations to fund research and eradicate this awful disease. As many of you know, this April I had spine surgery. As I recover, I am more than ever determined to walk again this year. This experience has made me appreciate even more how important our health counts every single day and how it can be taken away in an instant. Gratitude for all of my friends and family is my word of the year. You are all so precious in my life.
The walk is scheduled to be held Sunday, October 22, 2023 and we are planning on an in-person Walk at this point, with the option of walking in your own neighborhood if preferred. Please join us and sign up under my team name by clicking the Join My Team button. We are, once again, walking at LA Pierce College this year (6201 Winnetka Avenue in Woodland Hills). This is a pleasant, safe walk.
If you cannot join us at the walk, please help me reach my personal goal of $3,000 (which hopefully I will be increasing later), and make a tax-deductible donation by clicking the Donate button. I know this year has been financially challenging for many people, so even a small donation would be appreciated. This disease does not stop and we need to find a cure. You can visit my personal fund raising page to make a secure credit card donation online, or download and print a paper form on my page to mail in with a check. All donations benefit the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association - and every dollar makes a difference in this fight.
Together, we can end Alzheimer's disease. Thank you for joining the fight against Alzheimer's!
