I'm participating in the Longest Day to honor my grandparents, Lester and Lucille Toelke. I witnessed them lose their memory - forget who their own children and grandchildren were.
I decided to take the CHOOSE YOUR OWN CHALLENGE activity!
I will run/walk for two months: May 1 - June 30. That is 61 days and I am asking you to pledge to sponsor my miles! How many miles do you think I can get? 100? 200? Sponsor anything from $.10/mile or make a flat donation to support me.
We need to reclaim the future for millions by participating in the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's®, I'm committed to raising awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s research, care and support.
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.
For the millions already affected by the disease, the Association offers care, education, support and resources in communities nationwide.
Thank you for joining the movement! The end of Alzheimer's disease starts with you.
