I continue to believe that more than so many other tragic diseases, Alzheimer's tears the family apart. I truly believe the victim suffers far less than the loved ones. I first walked in the Seacoast Walk in 2008, when my mom was deteriorating mentally in her home in a remote location on a lake -- a very isolated location. She passed a month after my 2009 Walk. This year will be my 13th Walk, and I've also participated on the Seacoast Walk Committee since 2010.
There is, however, a HUGE difference in this year’s Walk . . . As with all realms of life this year, the COVID pandemic has caused many changes to how this Walk is happening in 2020. Rather than my participating in the usual, fabulous crowd event up in Portsmouth NH, all participants are walking wherever – in their own communities, on their favorite trail, wherever! And wherever also mandates following COVID guidelines including masks, safe distancing as well as walking alone or in small groups. I’ll be walking in Hampton with at least one of my daughters on Sunday, September 27.
Needless to say, fundraising for the event has also been impacted. So, please help me make a difference by making a donation to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association. Together, we can make Alzheimer's disease a memory!
Thank you for joining the fight against Alzheimer's!
