Alzheimer’s disease is relentless. So are we.
Twelve years ago I lost my sweet dad who always had a smile on his face, a twinkle in his eye and always reached for my hand when we walked side by side. He taught me to enjoy life to its fullest, make friends along the way, be proud to be an Iowan and always cheer for the underdog. I think of him everyday and will continue to raise awareness and money to find a cure for Alzheimer's.
The "Walking in Memory of Lyle" team has been walking since 2004 and this year we'll be in Kansas City on Sunday, October 6th raising money and awareness in memory of my dad and the 5.8 million American's who have this disease. Last year Lindsey and I walked in Angels Stadium and were happy to see my dad's photo on the jumbo-tron. Being a baseball fan he would've gotten a kick out of seeing himself on the big screen.
With your help and continued support over the past 15 years the "Walking in Memory of Lyle" team has raised over $30,000 for care, research and awareness.
Please help by participating in your local walk, supporting me in my fundraising efforts or volunteering for the cause.
77% of your donation goes to care, support, research, awareness and advocacy.
"Remember to be safe and turn the lights off."
With love and gratitude,
