Come join me and this wonderful AA Unite NYC team for our Ninth annual Actors and Artists Unite NYC walk on Saturday, October 26th at the beautiful South Street Seaport in Manhattan, NY!

The AA Unite team began in May of 2011 via a series of phone calls and emails to my fellow actor friends around the country -- "Gang- I have this idea . . ."  In 2013, Actors and Artists Unite became the first non-corporate Friends and Family National Team for the Walk to End Alzheimer's. We have teams from South Dakota to Louisiana; from Texas to Rhode Island, Arizona, Michigan and all across the country.

I read the stories of all of our teams- "I lost my grandmother . . . my dad . . . we had to put our mom into assisted living. She was wandering out of the house and most of the time- she didn't know us." So many families- so much loss and suffering.Through this team, I have discovered the compassion and strength of the artistic community around the country. Now that we are a national team, it is always so thrilling to hear- "Nance- I have a friend who is at Oregon Shakes. I have a friend who works at Disney. Do we have a team in Ashland? Do we have a team in Orlando?" and I get to say- "We do now!"

I lost my father this summer- he had Dementia. I had promised him- "A cure in our lifetime." Now, I will work that much harder, walk that much further to keep my half of that promise- a cure in mine. I walk for my dad- I walk for my mom who died in 2011 and my aunt who died in 2015. I walk for my team and everyone that they have lost or are losing. I walk for anyone who knows how heartbreaking it is to look in the eyes of someone you love and have them not know you- to watch them fade away until they can no longer speak or move. This is Alzheimer's.

I walk because through the commitment and solidarity of this amazing team --we walk in glory. We walk for a cure for this nightmare. We walk to bring light out of all this darkness. And we walk in hope and strength for a future- that we can all remember.

So, come join us on Saturday, October 26th at the South Street Seaport, Pier 17, South Street and Fulton Street, New York, NY 10038. Registration begins at 8:00 AM: Opening and Promise Flower ceremony begins at 9:00 AM and the 1 or 3 mile walk over the Brooklyn Bridge starts at 9:30 AM. Come join us! All are welcome!

In loving solidarity-
