Hello again friends and family.
I was so inspired by my son Adam's message to our friends that I am showing it to you instead of creating my own message. Here it is:.....It’s It’s that time of year again; time to donate to the I Love Lucy! Team for the Twin Cities Walk to End Alzheimer’s! We are less than a week from Walk Day, and in the midst of all the craziness in the world, my fundraising motto this year is “better late than never.”
This is our 10th year participating in the Walk, our 10th year of fighting this dreadful disease, and our 10th year of dealing with what Alzheimer’s has done to our family. This year also marks our 5th year walking without Lucy; a week from today will be the five-year anniversary of Mom’s passing. Not a day goes by that I don’t think about her and what my children, nieces and nephews, brother and sisters, father, all of you, and I are missing with her gone.
So we keep fighting. We fight to find a cure for Alzheimer’s. We fight so that our children won’t have to go through what we went through. We fight so that we won’t have to go through what Mom went through. We fight so that none of you who are dealing with Alzheimer’s in your life have to deal with it again, and we fight so that those of you who have not been touched by the disease can stay that way. We fight so we can find the #FirstSurvivor.
How do we fight? We Walk. We raise awareness. And we raise funds. I hope you will find a way to join the fight with us. Throughout these 10 years, your generosity has been astounding. You have been Lucy’s “cloud of witnesses” and I am grateful beyond imagination for your love and support for my family and me. Please consider joining the I Love Lucy! Team, making a donation, or both! This walk will be virtual, so all you’ll need to do is roll out of bed on Saturday, grab a donut, sport some purple, and walk around your neighborhood (we’ll be doing the same, all over the metro). To register, donate, or learn more, please click here.
Thank you so much for joining the fight to #EndALZ. The end of Alzheimer’s Disease starts with YOU!!
Adam Thompson…for me, Bert Thompson
