In memory of my wonderful mother, Rita Otting Frost, who died in 2009 after living with dementia for more than 20 years, I walk every year. Being out in the fresh air, hearing the birds, and chatting with fellow walkers is a good way to celebrate Mom and all of life.
In memory of my dear former neighbor, Claire, who died from Alzheimer's disease in 2018, I walk. Spending time with Claire when her daughter needed respite was a privilege. Claire gave me hope that better treatments will enable more people to maintain dignity as they cope with Alzheimer’s Disease.
For my children and grandchildren I walk. I hope Alzheimer’s Disease is wiped out and not something for them to fear. 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.
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 prevention, treatments and a cure for Alzheimer's. For the millions already affected by the disease, the Association offers care, education, support and resources in communities nationwide.
Thank you for joining our movement! The end of Alzheimer's disease starts here.
Thank you for helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
