I am doing this in memory of my Grandmother Bonnie Vaughn. Fiesty little old lady whom we lost to this dease. She was barely 4' 11" if that, so my family used to joke that you knew the corn was good to harvest when it was "Bonnie high by the 4th of July", hence the team name. I have now included my mom, Karen, since I lost her last year( 7-26-2020) to dementia.
I'm walking to help reclaim the future for millions. By participating in the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's®, I'm committed to raising awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s research, care and support.
Currently, more than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer's and that number is expected to grow to as many as 16 million by 2050. Our future is at risk unless we can find a way to change the course of this disease.
I need your support to do my part! Please make a donation to help the Alzheimer's Association advance research into methods of treatment, prevention and, ultimately, a cure for Alzheimer's. For the millions already affected by the disease, the Association offers care, education, support and resources in communities nationwide.
Thank you for joining the movement! The end of Alzheimer's disease starts with you.
Thank you for helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
