My Story

I am not sure why I like to torture myself, but this year I am facing another fear if I can meet my fundraising goal... climbing the Manitou Incline! (Well, I do know why, because it's for a good cause. AND Having Alzheimer's is much more challenging than any fears I may face.)


For those of you not in Colorado, it is considered an extreme trail/hike. It gains 2,000 feet in elevation in less than a mile and has 2,768 steps! Somewhere in my "older age" I became afraid of heights. I couldn't even complete the 200 step incline at a different location. So, when I say this will push me to my limits, it's no joke! 

I will only be completing this terrifying hike if I can raise $5,536. That's $2 per step! I am setting this goal steep, because it's a steep mountain I am about to climb. I have to say, I am inspired by two of our TLD participants, Heather Ulrich and Pam Macy who pushed themselves for their fundraising challenge.

I am participating in The Longest Day to raise money and awareness for the Alzheimer's Association! My family and I are very passionate about this fundraiser because we have been deeply touched by Alzheimer's and dementia. I personally grew up watching my great grandmother struggle with it while watching my grandparents and great aunt and uncle  for her. Sadly, I then became a caregiver for both of my grandparents when they were diagnosed with Alzheimer's. 


My personal experience is only part of the reason why I fight against this disease. Professionally, I have watched this disease financially devastate families, cause heartbreak and impact every part of people's lives.
