2022 Walk was a HUGE success! Thanks to my many generous supporters, I was able to raise $8176, exceeding my goal of $5000. The Walk itself is an inspiring day of shared experiences, hope that the cure will be found soon, compassion for each family dealing with the disease, and fond memories of those for whom we walk--my beloved Dave was with us every step of the way.
Mu husband Dave passed away November 2016 after 5 years of progressive Alzheimer's disease. His last few months were spent in a wonderful, caring memory care facility, Primrose, in Santa Rosa. But he was declining rapidly and was bedridden for the last three months of his life. Not the way such an active and engaged man should have to survive. He never lost his smile and gentle self. We must find a cure for this horrible disease. The support I got during his illness and after his passing was so important in my getting through a most difficult time.
We will once again honor his memory by walking as Dave's Gang October 7th . Dave's Gang is growing! Last year we surpassed our goal and raised $27,987 and this year our goal is $24,000. We are a fun group of folks who enjoy each other's company. This year's Dave's Gang's Walk Experience will be in Larkspur, a local neighborhood. We love the opportunity to talk with people as we stroll the street, sharing information, recruiting future participants.
Please join us by walking with us (join the team) or making a donation to support me (which also supports the team). Thank you in advance!
