I walk in memory of my Dad who died in February of 2017. He was and still is my hero.
Our walk will be different this year. Team dad will still walk together, just not physically with all the other teams.
In spirit, we stand together.
I also walk to honor my Mom, who was his primary caregiver for longer than any of us realized. She has a strength I can only hope to emulate. Together, they are the foundation for everything I am.
We need to put an end to this dreadful disease.
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’s research, care and support. Most of you know, we lost my Dad this year. My Dad and Mom have always been my hero's (and they still are). They have been an example of love and committment that is unmatched. I cannot express the heartbreak to lose a little more of him every day. This is a devastating disease and the impact is greater than I can explain. I pray for anyone touched by this disease.
Currently, more than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer's and that number is expected to grow to as many as 16 million by 2050. Our future is at risk unless we can find a way to change the course of this disease.
I need your support to do my part! Please make a donation to help the Alzheimer's Association advance research into methods of treatment, prevention and, ultimately, a cure for Alzheimer's. For the millions already affected by the disease, the Association offers care, education, support and resources in communities nationwide.
I do not want anyone else to go through this.
Thank you for joining the movement! The end of Alzheimer's disease starts with you.
Thank you for helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
