My name is Katelynn Anderson, I am 16 years old and my great grandmother died with Alzheimer's when I was 6 months old. I participated in my first walk when I was 8 months old and have continued to every year since. Last year was my fifth year being a volunteer and participate for the Walk to End Alzheimer's. July 2018 my 98-year-old grandmother who was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s entered heaven. My family and I were spending every Wednesday evening with her and I saw how horrible this disease is. I want to get the word out about this awful disease and help bring awareness to a world without Alzheimer's.
This year my goal is to raise $2,500.
I am also honored to have been featured in the National Blog for the Alzheimer’s Association in October 2019. https://www.alzheimersblog.org/2019/10/11/santa-rosa-pre-teen-is-a-top-walk-fundraiser/
In 2019 I represented the white flower as a symbol of the first survivor during our walk.
