Why do I Walk to End Alzheimer's?
I walk to raise funds because this is a horrible, horrible disease that affects not just the one with the disease, but everyone in the family. I walk to raise funds in order to provide community education about not just this disease, but how to care for those with all forms of dementia. I walk to raise funds to provide support for the 16.5 million family caregivers (a .4 million increase from last year) who are sacrificing so much in their caregiving roles. I walk to raise funds to provide more research money, because without more research, this disease will triple in the next 31 years.
I walk to raise funds because I don't want my children or grandchildren caring for me or having the disease themselves. Ever. EVER.
Thank you for helping us advance Alzheimer's support, care and research!
