Support the Walk To End Alzheimer’s 2015

Walk to End AlzheimersThis will be the third year that I have had the opportunity to participate in The Walk to End Alzheimer’s. My mother-in-law has been battling this disease for a few years now and we are all waking (Cheryl, Andrew, Max & I) in her honor and hoping for a cure.

The Walk is a great gathering of people who have lost loved ones, those who are care-givers for those struggling with the disease and even people who have Alzheimer’s. The primary goal is to find a cure.

My wife has set up our Walk to End Alzheimer’s Donation Page and we would appreciate any support that you can offer.  I know there are many great organizations that are raising funds and not everyone can give to everything.  If you can help, click on the link or the picture above.

This is our picture from last year’s Walk.  Thanks for considering supporting us in The Walk 2015.


Walk to End Alzheimer’s 2014

PrintThe second weekend in October is the Walk to End Alzheimer’s in Dayton. I participated in my first walk last year and walk in honor of my mother-in-law Phyllis. She was diagnosed a couple of years ago and has been living in a care facility. While I don’t carry the weight of caring for her on a regular basis, I’ve seen up close what a struggle that is for her family. She is not the same wife and mother due to this disease and it is a sad process to watch.

The Walk to End Alzheimer’s is designed to raise funds to further research to find a cure. Currently, more than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer’s and that number is expected to grow to as many as 16 million by 2050. Last year we walked with hundreds of people in sea of purple to bring awareness to this disease. I would love to have your support as I prepare to walk. You can make a donation of any size on my Walk to End Alzheimer’s page.

Thanks in advance for any gift you can give.

Support Walk to End Alzheimers

Walk to End AlzheimersOn Saturday, September 28, I will be joining my wife in the 2013 Walk to End Alzheimer’s – Dayton, OH. My mother-in-law, Phyllis, was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and has been living in a care facility for over a year now. The disease is so tragic as it slowly steals away the life and memories of your loved one right in front of your eyes. As with all patients, Phyllis has her good days and bad. Cheryl, her father and family do a great job caring for her.

We are walking to raise money for Alzheimer’s care, support and research. You can donate any amount on-line and it can even be done anonymously, but we’d love to know who is supporting us.
