Join the Alzheimers' Memory Walk

Alzheimer's Memory Walk

When I was a kid, we walked in the MS Walk A Thon, and the Crop Walk for Hunger. Now there is the Alzheimers Memory Walk. The Alzheimers Memory Walk, is just like any other walk for charity cause. You agree to get sponsors, who will pledge you to walk a certain amount of miles. You walk the miles, and the money you raise goes to help fund Alzheimers research, and care for those who suffer from this debilitating disease.



As a nurse, for 21 years, and having a great grandmother, that suffered from Alzheimers, I have seen first hand the things this disease does to your mind. It can start at a fairly young age, right up to 80 or 90. People who suffer from Alzheimers, may look healthy and normal, but their brain does not function the way it used to. They forget to do the simplest things, like feed themselves, or dress themselves. Alot of them will just sit and stare at their food, if someone does not tell them to eat. It is a very sad disease, that with research hopefully they can find a cure. You can help. They are currently in great need of Team Captains, and walkers to raise money. If you have a little time to spare, you can help this great cause. As a homeschooler, I think it is important to teach our children love and kindness, and the gift of charity.

If you would like to be a Team Captain, or just be a sponsored walker, click one of the available links provided. Help find a cure, for this debilitating disease.
