Why I Walk to End Alzheimer's
Mama & me at 4.
My mother, Lee. Her sister Phyllis. Their aunts, Leslie and Shirley. All vibrant, intelligent, funny, extraordinary women who lost their lives in the madness that is Alzheimer's Disease. They are the reason I am walking to end Alzheimer's for the sixth year. I'd like to invite YOU to join me this Saturday, May 12th, at Center City Park in downtown Greensboro.
I'm walking to help reclaim the future for millions. By participating in the 2012 Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's, I'm committed to raising awareness and funds for Alzheimer 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 - or join my team - to help the Alzheimer's Association advance research into prevention, treatments and 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 our movement! The end of Alzheimer's disease starts here.
