About the Alzheimer's Association "Walk to End Alzheimer's"

As many of you know, I lost a loved one who had Alzheimer's disease and saw first hand the effect this devastating 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 largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research. Held annually in more than 600 communities nationwide, this inspiring event calls on participants of all ages and abilities to reclaim the future for millions. Together, we can end Alzheimer’s disease, the nation’s sixth-leading cause of death.

Thanks again for your support :)
