Hello and happy August 2020!  

What a strange summer it has been but I trust all of you are well and being safe.

Let me welcome you to the Papa Fish and Freddo team. 

The team called Papa Fish was created last year after the passing of Mike Rahaley. In early September 2019, we quickly assembled a small team to honor him at the 2019 Walk to End Alzheimer's.  It was a beautiful fall morning and our inaugural team of walkers included Beth (Mike's wife), three of his sisters-in-law (Francie, Jane, and Chattye) and myself.   A few of Mike's close friends (Bill Norcross, etc.) also graciously donated to the walk using the on-line registration tool.  The walk kicked off at the Great Lakes Center for the Arts in Bay Harbor around 10 am on September 14th.  Immediately following that walk, we all vowed to come back next year but better promote the event and raise more dollars.   I decided to formally nominate myself as team captain and add my dad to the list of who we were honoring.   So, I went to a captains’ meeting sponsored by the Michigan chapter and built this team page and made the first donation to get the ball rolling.   Please give us a hand with the fund raising (any amount is appreciated, seriously).  This year is quite unlike last year, there will be no formal gathering, no speeches and no live pep talks.  It is in effect a virtual walk. But the Alzheimer's disease is not taking a pause.  So we need to continue to raise money.   The money raised will go toward supporting caregivers via the 24/7 hotline (800-272-3900), enhancing the website (alz.org), as well as funding research to find a cure.  And if you are in the Petoskey area on August 29, come walk with us in masks and socially distanced around Bayfront Park. Together, let's welcome the first Alzheimer survivor.

Thanks, Pat Gibbons
