Alzheimer’s isn’t stopping and neither are we. By participating in the Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s®, I’m raising funds and awareness to advance the fight against this disease — funds that allow the Alzheimer’s Association® to provide 24/7 care and support while accelerating critical research.
Families facing Alzheimer’s and all other dementia need us now more than ever — and with your help, we can be there for them. Please make a donation and together, we can end Alzheimer’s disease.
This year due to Covid there will not be a group walk. Everyone is asked to have their own individual walk in their neighborhood. HOWEVER, on Sunday at the Square in Jacksonville there will be a short ceremony at 1:30 p.m.. Each year donors can select and "plant" a flower. The flowers will be on the grassy area this weekend for all to view. Each color has a meaning: ORANGE-support for the cause, PURPLE-symbolizes a lost loved one, YELLOW-represents a caregiver for someone with Alzheimer's or dementia abd BLUE (MINE)- represents someone living with it -MY PRECIOUS MOTHER. I could actually have one of every color since I have dealt with this demon over the past 18 years within my immediate family. Believe it or not 11 of 17 first cousins in my family have dementia or Alzheimer's. Some are still with us physical while others have left this world.
Forget-me-nots symbolize true love and respect. When you give these flowers to someone the tiny blooms represents a promise that you will ALWAYS remember them and will keep them in your thoughts.
Please search 2021 East Central Alabama Alzheimer's Walk. Click Donate and then click Team...in the Team White Box type "Team Shipp". When my team name pops up click on it and it is easy to donate any amount...no amount is to small. You will need a credit card and at the end of the form you complete dont forget to hit the submit button. I am currently short of my goal. Three (3) years ago I raised over $2,000. I know times are hard and our economy is different but give up a soda and candy bar and donate at least $5. Please have all donations posted by Sunday morning 10 a.m. Almost 80% of all donations are for research and to help patients. Only about 4% is for administrative costs and the rest is for publicity, etc.
PLEASE JOIN ME IN THE FIGHT TODAY TO ERADICATE THIS HORRIBLE DISEASE THAT TAKES OUR LOVED ONES AWAY FROM US TWICE....ONCE WHILE THEY LIVE WITH THE DISEASE AND THEN WHEN IT TAKES THEM FROM THIS EARTHLY LIFE....WE NEED TREATMENT AND A CURE....PLEASE HELP! GOD BLESS !!!
