Berkley Stafford: Why I Walk
I participate in the Walk to End Alzheimer’s because of my paternal grandmother, Margaret Stafford. She was a very founded, good Christian lady who raised her family in Wallace, NC. She was a fantastic homemaker, a deacon in the church, and she even owned her own plant nursery for a while. A really good life, she lived. Alzheimer’s does not discriminate between good, bad, pretty, ugly; it’s a disease that affects everyone. If it’s affected our family to that degree, you want to do everything you possibly can to contribute to an effort to one day find a cure so that you don’t ever have to experience this awful disease. https://transimpact.com/walk-end-alzheimers-berkley-stafford/

Neal Newhouse: Why I Walk
About five years ago my dad got diagnosed with dementia, Alzheimer’s. We lost him last December. He was 79. I walk to raise awareness. If we can raise awareness, maybe we can get more federal funding to end Alzheimer’s. It’s the least thing the government is funding. I and the other Pap’s Peeps are walking — I’ll be wearing my Pap’s Peeps T-shirt! https://transimpact.com/walk-end-alzheimers-neal-newhouse/

Keith Byrd: Why I Walk
What brings me to this Walk to End Alzheimer’s is my grandfather, Fred R. Byrd, Sr. I called him “Papaw.” He died of this awful disease May 19, 1999. Hopefully someday we can come up with a way to get rid of this disease. I’m in a position now to do something. That’s what it’s going to take — people recognizing the problem and putting funds towards finding a solution. Hats off to everybody that’s doing this walk. https://transimpact.com/walk-end-alzheimers-keith-byrd/
