Amy's Army was created in 2021 to raise money for the Walk to End Alzheimer's in honor of Amy Shimkus. Amy was diagnosed with Alzheimer's about a year after retiring from her life long work as a nurse. She was a nurse and a caregiver to the core and the team that cared for her on her memory care unit at the Wesley Community in Saratoga Springs, NY called her "Nurse Amy" because she still tried to help everyone else! Outside of her work, she loved to spend time with her sisters, three children, their spouses, her 7 grandchildren and her grand dog RBI "Ribby". She had several stuffed animal RBI look-a-likes keeping her company in her nursing home and now we are thinking of starting Amy's Animal Army soon! Amy passed away March 23, 2022 and we want Amy’s Army to be make a great impact this year as she made such a positive impact on anyone she met. It is our hope to celebrate her life at this year’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s. Please support our team for the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's®, the world’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research. We will be walking in Reston, VA on October 23rd and we'd love for you to join our team!
