Come join the amazing Actors and Artists Unite Portland team for the Walk to End Alzheimer's on Saturday, October 14th at the beautiful Oregon Zoo in Portland, OR! Anyone can join us -- in person or virtually.
Actors & Artists Unite (AAU) began in May of 2011, via a series of phone calls and emails by Nancy Daly to her family and fellow artists and friends around the country. By September, four teams walked in Washington DC, New York City, Miami, and Los Angeles and raised $23,000 in their first year. In 2013, AAU became the first non-corporate Friends and Family National Team for the Walk to End Alzheimer's. There are AAU teams around the US and in London, England. In December 2021, the AAU National Team reached the historic goal of having raised over $330,000.
AAU was built by reaching out to families, friends, and colleagues around the country via word of mouth and social media. This team exemplifies the compassion and strength of the artistic community around the country. We walk for our own loved ones and for each other. We walk for anyone who knows how heartbreaking it is to look in the eyes of someone you love and have them not know you -- to watch them fade away until they can no longer speak or move. This is Alzheimer's.
We walk for a cure. We walk to bring light out of all this darkness. And when we walk in hope and strength for a future - that all can remember - we walk in glory.
So join us. Anyone who appreciates the arts is welcome!
Come walk with us on Saturday, October 14th at the beautiful Oregon Zoo. 4001 SW Canyon Rd, Portland, OR 97221. Registration begins at 7:30 AM: Opening and Promise Flower Ceremony begin at 9:00 AM, and the walk at 10 AM.
