The Walk to End Alzheimer's is a special event and passion of mine. My first encounter with Alzheimer's disease was during elementary and middle school while my maternal grandfather battled it for 8 years.
It wasn't until I went to college and joined Sigma Kappa sorority that I learned more about the disease and realized I could help. After a year of hosting events, fundraising, and working feverishly for the Walk as philanthropy chair, I felt that I had participated in great change. I could see the fruits of my labor and knew the money raised would help families like mine. During that time, I lost my paternal grandfather to Alzheimer's disease as well.
Now, I have stepped into a volunteer role for the Cherokee County Walk Planning Committee helping with Marketing and Communications. I'm so glad to be involved with the Alzheimer's Association again because I know exactly how fulfilling and important the work they do is.
If you feel led, please consider donating to our team or to the Cherokee Walk as a whole. The work being done by the Alzheimer's Association is invaluable and their progress is made possible by people like us.
Thank you for helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
