Hiking

to fight Alzheimer's

My Story

What is The Temple Project and how does it have anything to do with the Longest Day or Alzheimer's? In a nutshell, The Temple Project is a small group of advocates, myself included, who have committed to hiking 180km over 8 days along the Magna Via Francigena - from Palermo, Italy to Agrigento, Italy with the journey beginning quite fittingly on The Longest Day. 


We will be challenging ourselves physically and emotionally - the journey is long, it is hot and  is predominantly 'off road' - most of us are not long distance hikers, but ALL of us are committed to making a difference in the lives of all those touched by Alzheimer's.


I lost my dad on May 6, 1999, so, on this 20th year anniversary of his passing, I will be hiking in his memory, and in honor of so many that continue to live with Alzheimer's. I have been an active fundraiser and advocate for 20 years, but this endeavor is by far the most challenging.  I, along with my teammates, will be standing up to the darkness of Alzheimer's and your donation will go directly to helping the Alzheimer's Association support all those facing the disease.  In addition, I would be honored to 'carry' your loved one with me on this epic journey - when I reach Agrigento, I will read each and every name at the Temple of the Gods, and will create a video that I will post to YouTube for you to view. 


I hope that you will consider a donation, and if you would like your loved one to 'travel' with me, in the 'donor recognition' section, add their name and let me know if it is in memory, or in honor - you can also follow our preparations and our journey on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/groups/pilgrimagetoenlightenment/   - please feel free to share this - the more people that we touch, the more awareness we raise, and more funding helps us find a cure - it is time that we find the light to outshine the darkness of this terrible disease.

With much love and gratitude,

Karen
