Dear Friends and Family,
Alzheimer’s disease is a global epidemic. Worldwide, at least 44 million people are living with the disease, including over 5 million Americans. In the United States alone, more than 15 million Americans are serving as caregivers — a physically, emotionally and financially draining role. To honor all those facing Alzheimer’s, I am participating in The Longest Day®, a sunrise-to-sunset event that takes place on June 21, 2015. This corresponds to my return home from walking the Camino de Santiago – the 500 mile pilgrimage from St. Jean Pied de Port, France to Santiago, Spain.
We are challenging ourselves to honor those who face Alzheimer’s every day with strength, heart and endurance. I hope to make a big contribution in the fight against Alzheimer’s by reaching my personal fundraising goal of $2,500.00, and I’d be so grateful if you would support me. Your support of my walk and The Longest Day will help the Alzheimer’s Association to enhance care and support and advance critical research for all those affected by this devastating disease. You can help me reach my goal by making a donation using the button on the right.
