On September 26 I will once again be Walking to End Alzheimer's! If all goes well my team and I will be walking as a group at the DCR North Point Park. We will be just a few of the thousands of walkers who will turn out to raise awareness and funds in support of the Alzheimer's Association. I hope you will join me, either by joining Team Virginia and walking with us or by making a donation on my team's behalf.
More than 6 million Americans are living with Alzheimer's disease and more than 11 million Americans provide unpaid care to their loved ones suffering with dementia. One in three seniors dies with Alzheimer's or some other form of dementia. Alzheimer's care will cost our country $355 billion in 2021. If we do not find a viable treatment, that amount is projected to reach $1.1 trillion in 2050. I have already lost two family members to dementia - my mother, for whom Team Virginia is named, and my cousin Karen. Both my in-laws are struggling with dementia. This cause is personal for me.

Many of you have supported me in this effort in past years, and I am truly grateful. I hope you will continue your support. If you have not supported this event in the past, I hope you will consider doing so this year.
Thank you for helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
