On August 10, 2019, my family and I are walking to honor my brother-in-law, Arthur “Bud” Larkin who died last year from Alzheimer’s. We’re walking to raise awareness of and funds to support people living with Alzheimer’s, their loved ones and their caregivers. The money we raise will fund research to prevent and, one day soon, cure Alzheimer’s.
In the 1990s, I was fortunate enough to work as a pilot instructor at my airline alongside Captain Emily Warner (FAA APM - B-737 Fleet), who was the first female captain to work at a major airline. Emily is currently living with Alzheimer’s and recently painted a picture titled, “Flight,” which was auctioned for over $2,000 in support of Alzheimer’s research. And no, I did not buy it.
Emily was an outstanding aviator and an inspiration for me in what it means to be an airline captain. I also walk for her.
Please, consider joining “Team Brotherly Love,” on Saturday morning, August 10th, for the Walk to End Alzheimer’s at the CU Campus in Boulder. We’re walking to honor my brother-in-law, Bud Larkin, and to support those living with Alzheimer’s, like my friend Captain Emily Warner. If you’re unable to walk, please consider making a donation to “Team Brotherly Love," on this page by clicking the, "Donate," button.
Thank you for joining the fight against Alzheimer's!
Thank you for helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
