Alzheimer’s disease is relentless. But guess what - so are we! Please join the Wells Fargo & Friends team as we link arms (and feet) to raise awareness and support for the fight to end Alzheimer's disease. And if you aren't able to join us for the actual walk, you can offer support through donations and other volunteer opportunities!
Team Captain Note:
I lost my mother to early onset Alzheimer's disease in 2004. She was diagnosed at age 55 and lost her battle 10 years later. When she died, we lost not just a mother, but also a beloved grandmother, wife, sister, daughter, tutor, librarian, caregiver, mentor, accountant, master cookie-maker, animal lover and friend. Her grandchildren were graced with just a brief glimpse of who "Grandmother-by-the-train" was. They never got to know how funny she was, or challenge her in charades, learn from her sage advice, eat her homemade pecan waffles for dinner, or blaze new trails with her. They missed the warmth of her snuggles, her animated storytelling and sharing endless giggles together. They missed out on the wisdom and experiences and secrets that only she could share.
Mom instilled in me the vision of endless possibilities. I believe it's possible that one day we will see an end to this awful disease. To make that a reality, we need your help. Join my team on Saturday, November 2, 2019 to walk and raise awareness and support for finding a cure for this devastating disease. 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.
We can end Alzheimer's and keep memories growing through our combined donations and taking one step at a time, together.
Thank you for joining the fight against Alzheimer's!
NOTE: I will provide updates and additional details - including other volunteer opportunities - leading up to the actual walk date.
Thank you for helping us advance Alzheimer's support, care and research!
