This year's Walk will be different. The Walk to End Alzheimer's won't be the traditional large in-person gathering it has been in the past. Instead, it will be individual walkers or small teams of friends and family walking on sidewalks, tracks and trails in their neighborhoods and communities to raise awareness and funds in the effort to reach a world without Alzheimer's.
This year's Walk will be different. For seven years, I have carried a yellow pinwheel flower to honor my mom, Joanne, during the annual Walk to End Alzheimer's. Yellow signifies those who are supporting or caring for someone with Alzheimer's or dementia. Soon after last year's Walk, my mom was freed from the constraints of Alzheimer's. This year, I will walk in memory of Joanne. Instead of a yellow flower, I will carry a purple balloon. Purple represents walkers who have lost someone to Alzheimer's or other type of dementia.
This year's Walk will be different. But one thing remains the same: my commitment to raise funds to help end Alzheimer's.
