Someone once said, "when you love someone with dementia you lose them more and more every day. When you they are diagnosed, when they go through the different stages, when they go into care and when the die".

Alzheimer’s is far reaching. Eddie Albert, Charles Bronson, Glenn Campbell, Sargent Shriver, Jimmy Stewart, Sidney Poitier, Ronald Reagan, Margaret Thatcher, Robin Williams, Casey Kasem, Rosa Parks, Pat Summit, Norman Rockwell, Gordie Howe are just a few of the famous people who suffered from Alzheimer’s or some form of dementia. 

For Gerry’s Kids, our Walk is more personal.  The team is named after Gerry Herold, Mom to several team members.  Edward Goodwin, grandfather to Barbara (Goodwin) Dean. Catherine Dorsey, grandmother of Mindy Geppi.  The list goes on…. and on……. and on. Whether you know one someone personally or recognize one of the many famous people who has dealt with the disease, we have all seen the effect of this disease.

Today 1 in 3 seniors die with Alzheimer’s or some related dementia. It is not just a memory loss, Alzheimer’s kills.  There are more deaths from Alzheimer’s than breast cancer and prostate cancer combined. Deaths from Alzheimer’s have more than doubled between 2000 and today while those from heart disease – the leading cause of death – have decreased.

Alzheimer’s isn’t waiting and neither are we.  We are again stepping and participating in the Walk to End Alzheimer’s. Alzheimer’s is relentless and so are we!!  If you are interested, please join us for the Walk.  The time has come to take this challenge head on. One day we firmly believe we will live in a world where there is an Alzheimer’s survivor. Please join us as we pursue that dream!!

Thank you!
