2018 Walk was a HUGE success! Thanks to my many generous supports, I was able to raise over $4000, exceeding my goal of $3000. The Walk itself is an inspiring day of shared experiences, hope that the cure will be found soon, compassion for each family dealing with the disease, and fond memories of those for whom we walk--my beloved Dave was with us every step of the way.
Mu husband Dave passed away November 2016 after 5 years of progressive Alzheimer's disease. His last few months were spent in a wonderful, caring memory care facility, Primrose, in Santa Rosa. But he was declining rapidly and was bedridden for the last three months of his life. Not the way such an active and engaged man should have to survive. He never lost his smile and gentle self. We must find a cure for this horrible disease. The support I got during his illness and after his passing was so important in my getting through a most difficult time.
We will once again honor his memory by walking together as Dave's Gang this October in Petaluma. Dave's Gang is growing! Last year we surpassed our goal and raised over $17,000 and this year we are aiming even higher. We are a fun group of folks who enjoy each other's company. This is gentle 3 mile walk on levees (no hills!) and is completed before noon.
Please join us by walking with us or making a donation to support the team.
Thank you for helping us advance Alzheimer's support, care and research!
