This will be my 6th year participating in the Walk to End Alzheimer's, and each year I find myself inspired in ways I never thought possible. The Walk is important not only to raise funds, but to also bring awareness of the disease, showcase the many resources available in our local communities, honor all who have succumbed to the disease, all who are currently affected by some form of dementia/Alzheimer's, and for all families and caretakers. I truly believe there will be a day when the world's first Alzheimer's survivor will proudly hold up their white flower for all to witness. Until then, let's do our part to get there as soon as possible - volunteer, donate, and/or spread the word of local resources!! I walk in honor of family members who have been affected - Aunt Mary, Grandma Heim, and Grandpa B. Let's get that White Flower Power!! Thank you for helping me attain my goal this year - I am grateful for your support!

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.
I need your support to do my part! Please make a donation to help the Alzheimer's Association advance research into methods of treatment, prevention and, ultimately, a cure for Alzheimer's. For the millions already affected by the disease, the Association offers care, education, support and resources in communities nationwide.
Thank you for joining the movement! The end of Alzheimer's disease starts with you.
Thank you for helping us advance Alzheimer's support, care and research!
