Alzheimer’s isn’t stopping and neither are we. By participating in the Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s, I am raising funds and awareness to advance the fight against this disease — funds that allow the Alzheimer’s Association to provide 24/7 care and support while accelerating critical research.
I am raising money and walking in honor of my Papaw, who is one of my best friends. After having a major stroke, he developed dementia and his mental state began deteriorating quickly. My best friend no longer knew my name, but he somehow fought, and still fights, this awful disease with a smile on his face. My Papaw and I have been best friends since I was born, and that bond has only strengthened to this day. He continues to be an inspiration to me, reminding me to stay optimistic and face hardships just as he does, with a smile on his face.
Families facing Alzheimer’s and all other dementia need us now more than ever — and with your help, we can be there for them. Please make a donation or register as a participant and start your own fundraising. Together, we can end Alzheimer’s disease.
Thank you for helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
