Hello and happy summer 2020!
Let me welcome you to the Papa Fish team.
The team called Papa Fish was created last year after a difficult summer. Following the passing of Mike Rahaley, we quickly assembled a small team to honor him at the 2019 walk to end alzheimers. 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 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) and if you are in the Petoskey area on August 29, come by and walk with us and together let's welcome the first Alzheimer survivor.
