One of the best things about participating in the Walk to End Alzheimer's is the support that the group gives each other and our community! Participating in The Walk To End Alzheimer's has provided me not only knowledge about the disease, but connected me with a support system that I wish I would have had when my Mother had Early On-Set Dementia. My hope is that by bringing awareness and support, it will help others and eventually will put a stop to this deadly disease that effects over 5 Million Americans. Alzheimer's is the only cause of death in the top 10 in America, that cannot be prevented, cured, or slowed. We need to address it, specialize in the care of people that have it and continue to find preventative measures and a cure.
If you can't participate on our team this year, we would appreciate if you could donate $10-$20 on our page - anything helps. But I assure you, once you join the crowds of people at Target Field on September 28th, you will see the impact that your presence has! Wear anything (or everything!) purple and bring your Family and Fiends with you! We welcome everyone at the Walk to End Alzheimer's as this is a public health issue - not just a disease.
We are hosting events at Mortenson HQ surrounding the Walk to End Alzheimer's in the Twin Cities. Please start promoting our Mortenson Team page - "Mortenson Big Strides" - at your project or among your family and friends! Every ounce of participation helps! If you would like to sign up to walk with myself and our Mortenson team - do it soon! You will be eligible for Health Benefit Points on the Mortenson Be Your Own Hero program by signing up for participation in the Walk to End Alzheimer's as well!
If you want to help volunteer at different Alzheimer's Association events with me (Alicia Berg the Field Operations Administrator with Solar), donate money, buy a $1 Casual for a Cause sticker (You will hear about it - they are VERY popular!) or a $5 Flower for our "Flower Garden" on the Solar Floor, just have questions, or want to know how your group can become involved (We would love if more Mortenson groups joined the cause!) please feel free to reach out to me! I respond if you email, call, message, or email me anytime of the day.
We look forward to walking together to support the families that have become victim to this disease. The End to Alzheimer's Starts with One Step at a Time.
