I'm walking to help reclaim the future for millions. By participating in the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's, I'm committed to raising awareness and funds for Alzheimer research, care and support.
Ok, here goes...
As many of you may or may not know, I have been involved with the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life for the last 20 years. During this time, our "Duke it Out" team raised over $250,000.00 to help in the fight against cancer.
In 2005, I joined a Leukemia Team in Training, in the fight against Leukemia, and to participate in the Walt Disney Marathon. This was in honor of a co-workers daughter. I raised over $2600.00. In the past few years, I have taken part in fundraisers for Cystic Fibrosis, ALZ and ALS.
That brings us to now...
Previously, I raised money for Alzheimer's to honor two dear friends, George and Rose. Now it is really personal.
My wife Janene has been diagnosed with Dementia and early-onset Alzheimer's disease.
This is my new focus. I will attempt to raise $2620.00 for Alzheimer's research. The event is October 10 in Niceville, FL. Our team will remain "Duke" and I will post a link on Facebook soon, if you would like to help us fundraise. Please feel free to join our team or make a donation.
Thank you for helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
