2011 Walk to End Alzheimer's Photos ~ UPDATE

The Walk to End Alzheimer's was held on Saturday September 10th at Kinney Civic Plaza in Albuquerque.

During opening ceremonies, the Presentation of Colors was made by members of the fire and police departments.

And this gentleman is a fantastic choice to sing the Star Spangled Banner. Bravo!

Then, bagpipers played Amazing Grace.

These folks were all affected by Alzheimer's in various ways.
And the crowd held flowers to represent how their lives had been affected by Alzheimer's and to show honor and support.

We had the option of a 1K, 3K or 5K walk and of course we did the 5K! :)
There was a Kids Korner, K9 Korner,
Refreshments, a Raffle,
as well as other booths.
The Alzheimer's Association has received a total of $98,665 in donations and Team Perry's Termite made $369 of their $600 goal. UPDATE:  As of 11-10-11, The Alzheimer's Association has received $103,687 in donations!

Our team members were Rick, Ken, Diana, Mom and Mike. Way to go team!
Thanks again to everyone for you support and good wishes!!
