We formed TEAM HORTENSIA in memory of my mother in 2013. She was diagnosed with dementia in December 2008 and died in December 2012. Today we walk in memory and honor of many more loved ones.
Our team was named "TEAM HORTENSIA" because my mother always remembered her name. She didn't always remember her family members, but she always answered when she heard her name.
I am so grateful to our team for ALL their continued support and hard work in raising awareness and funds for this cause so dear to many of our hearts. I'm especially proud that their efforts were recognized in 2019 when our team was awarded The Legacy Award for the 7 consecutive years we had participated in the Palm Desert walk and over $32,000 we had raised in those years.
Now our team is walking to raise funds and awareness of how this disease affects millions of families. We welcome anyone who would like to join our team or make a donation to continue to help us in the fight to end Alzheimer's disease.
Thank you, Patsy Lee, Team Co Captain
