The name “Team Eddie Fitz for Alzheimer’s” originates from the mighty Edmund Fitzgerald, the Great Lake freighter that, along with her captain and crew, battled 30’ waves and eventually perished in Lake Superior on that fateful evening Nov 10, 1975. My late Dad, who had a love and passion for the Great Lakes, battled Alzheimer’s disease for 9 years until he lost his fight the morning of July 2, 2015. The battles we fight we don’t always win, but always serve to help us learn from and live in our hearts forever. He was my Superhero, and a brave warrior in my eyes.
My family and friends walk in memory of Dad, and through our many other fundraising efforts, Team Eddie Fitz has raised over $25,000 since 2010. We are helping to build awareness, and moving closer to one day meeting the First Survivor of this horrific and grave disease. The Walk is a way to remember Dad, and celebrate the efforts of all who work towards ending this disease.
