As many of you know, I lost a loved one who had Alzheimer's disease and saw first hand the effect this disease can have. So, the Alzheimer's Association and their work is very important to me. Since 2006 I have participated in The Walk to end Alzheimer's (previously called Memory Walk), first in Orange County, CA and now back home in Albuquerque. Please take a moment to visit my Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s™ 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!
The Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s™ 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.
The Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s™ is the nation's premier fundraiser to help those battling Alzheimer's disease. Since 1989, this all age, all-ability walk has mobilized millions to join the fight against Alzheimer’s disease and has raised more than $347 million for programs & services for individuals with Alzheimer's, their families, & caregivers. Events are held annually in the fall in nearly 600 communities nationwide.
Thanks again for your support :)
