I walk for my father. He battled early onset Alzheimer's and passed at 65. I lost him 2 years ago. I think about him every minute. He put his heart into ensuring special needs students recieved the best education and care possible. My dad loved his family so deeply. He was an avid cyclist. He made the best challah French toast and rock hard matzo balls. Always made me laugh. My dad was silly and goofy. He didn't care what other people thought. Always knew when I needed a hug. My dad was a comfort and security that i miss every minute of everyday.
The Alzheimer's association gave my family so much needed support through our long difficult journey. They gave us one on one meetings, support groups, guidance and understanding through each days struggle.
I walk to honor my dad. I walk so daughters don't lose their fathers too young. I walk so families can hold onto their loved ones longer. I walk for a cure. Please walk with me.
I love you Daddy!
Thank you for helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
