It is with a heavy heart that I inform you of the passing of my beloved wife Carolyn! Carolyn lost her brave 10 year battle with Alzheimer’s disease on January 27th, 2023! Carolyn was my wife for 52 incredible years, and she is the name sake of our Carolyn’s Crusaders fundraising team! Our team will be dedicating our fundraising efforts to Carolyn’s memory!
This is one of my favorite pictures from our Alzheimer’s walk last year! It features me, my wife Carolyn and her Bichon therapy dog, Shea! Carolyn is the first in our family to be diagnosed with this cruel disease and we pray she is the last! The first survivors of Alzheimer's are out there somewhere! Please help us find them!
The Alzheimer’s Association will be walking again this year in New Haven on September 24th. Our team will be joining with the Alzheimer's Association in celebration of what we hope is a very successful fundraising season! It is important to remember 90% of the magic happens before the walk...the fundraising! The generous donations from family and friends are what fuel the research that will make a difference in our future!
If possible, please support our team we lovingly call “Carolyn’s Crusaders!” If you would like to make a monetary donation of any amount, please click Donate, it would be Greatly appreciated! All donations go directly to the Alzheimer’s Association! Please help us save future generations from the heartbreak of this devastating disease! Please join the fight!
God bless Carolyn! May she Rest In Peace!
We wish you good health!
Rick Collins and Family
