I walk for my grandparents. As some of you may know, my grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's over 10 years ago. My grandfather, who just turned 90 years old, was caring for her. In December, she unfortunately passed away, leaving behind her loving husband of 68 years. Although I miss her greatly, I will continue to walk in her honor and raise money in hopes that a cure can be found for this horrible disease.
Grammy was a loving wife, mother, sister, grandmother to 7, and great-grandmother to 13, and friend to many! She worked as a ski and snowboard instructor for many years at Loon Mountain. She taught me how to ski when I began walking. She loved gardening and bird watching, but not as much as she loved her amazing husband, Graham. They got married when she was just 20 years old and had 5 beautiful babies. She truly was one of a kind and is missed everyday.
I'm leading the way to Alzheimer's first survivor by participating in the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's®. 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.
Together, we can end Alzheimer's disease. Please make a donation to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.
