2010 Memory Walk~Alzheimer's Association of New Mexico
About Memory Walk
Memory Walk is the single largest fundraiser for the Alzheimer’s Association, both locally & nationally. The New Mexico Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association offers educational programs & trainings around the state, caregiver respite assistance program, a free quarterly newsletter, & a toll free helpline. In addition, the association assists with registration in the Safe Return Program for patients who wander, acts as a legislative advocacy body for patient rights, & maintains a network of more than 40 support groups statewide. All of these services are provided confidentially & free of charge.
Memory Walk is the nation's premier fundraiser to help those battling Alzheimer's disease. Since 1989, Memory Walk has raised more than $200 million for programs & services for individuals with Alzheimer's, their families, & caregivers.
As many of you know, I had a loved one who had Alzheimer's disease and I saw first hand the effect this disease can have. So, the Alzheimer's Association and the work they do is very important to me. Since 2006 I have participated in Memory Walk, first in Orange County, CA and now back home in Albuquerque. Please take a moment to visit my Memory Walk donation page either by clicking here, or the link on my sidebar. I appreciate any and all support and thank you in advance for your help!
