I am once again walking to end Alzheimer’s. I have been proudly supporting this campaign for 10 years now. I walk for many reasons. I walk for my grandmother, who was never officially diagnosed with dementia, but definitely suffered from memory loss. I also walk for the people I have been fortunate enough to care and provide a quality life for their remaining years, months, weeks, and even days. I walk for the caregivers, and by that I mean the spouses and family who struggle to care for their loved one. It’s a 24/7/365 job and in most cases the caregiving spouse fails to thrive and falls ill because they are no longer caring for themselves, but rather devoting all their time and energy caring for their spouse or loved one. And finally, I walk because I want to see an end to this disease. I truly believe we can all make a difference in this fight and I know in my heart there will be a cure. But it takes a village, and we are that village.
This year we will be walking virtually. This poses a challenge in many ways. We’re not seeing the fundraising we’ve seen in years past, and we all know why. But Covid-19 can’t stop us from trying to do everything we can to support this incredibly needed cause and organization. It’s also challenging because those who need their support are self quarantined and not receiving the aide they need to get through this. We need every dollar we can raise to end this fight once and for all. Help me, help Alz.org and let’s win this fight and see a cure to Alzheimer’s in our lifetime.
Thank you for your continued support. I truly appreciate each and every one of you.
Thank you for helping us advance Alzheimer's support, care and research!
