Support our team for the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's®, the world’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research.
On September 26, 2020 at 9am we are hosting an event to honor those who are suffering with this disease.
Some in our CrossFit Palm Bay community have loved ones suffering from Alzheimer's and dementia. If you have a loved one we can honor, let us know and we'll share their story.
Here's one of their stories.
"My sweet dad, Tom Martin, has Alzheimer's. I cannot express how hard it is to grieve the gradual and slow loss of a loved one through a disease like this. It is incredibly sad to see someone you love, who has always been your hero, slowly lose control of their body and mind.
He is a Lifetime Achievement Emmy Award-winning Videographer and is revered by so many for the way he has touched their lives.
I have met SO MANY people who have loved ones affected by Alzheimer's or some other form of dementia. It is a complicated issue from grief, caretaking, mental stress, financial stress, etc. That doesn't include the emotions that my Dad is experiencing too! In an effort to help raise awareness and funds for care, support, and research, I am excited to partner with CrossFit Palm Bay in the annual Walk to End Alzheimer's."
