100 Teams in 10 Days - July 15.jpg

Wes Milligan's Story

 

In 2004, I wrote a story that would change my life forever. At the time, I was a journalist in Louisiana and my editor asked me to write about Alzheimer’s disease — a health crisis I knew nothing about. I set out to interview people living with the disease and caregivers who were by their side every step of the way.

 

The conversations were heart wrenching.

 

I met kind, genuine people who were slowly losing their most cherished memories. 

They were fathers forgetting daughters, grandmothers forgetting grandchildren. Their losses overwhelmed me. I also spoke with caregivers who selflessly put the needs of others before their own, all while knowing the end of their journey would result in the same heartbreak millions of others have experienced. 

 

That story and those people are why Alzheimer’s is now a part of my story. Each year, I fundraise for the Walk to End Alzheimer’s. This fight has become my passion and my purpose. And today, I’m asking you to join me.

 

The Alzheimer’s Association’s Alabama Chapter has made it their mission to register 100 new teams across the state for the Walk to End Alzheimer’s in just ten days — one of our most ambitious goals to date. As a thank you to each new Team Captain who registers by July 25, we’ll send over a limited edition t-shirt that celebrates your commitment to finding a cure. Existing Team Captains can also earn a shirt by recruiting five new team members.

 

By joining us at the Walk, you’re using your voice to bring us one step closer to our ultimate goal, which is a world without Alzheimer’s disease. You’re helping us write a story where no one’s memories slip away.

 

Are you ready to join us as we fight for a new chapter? Register today!

 

With gratitude,

 

Wes Milligan
