Hello, It’s getting to that time again, the Annual Walk 4 Alzheimer’s is scheduled for 11/5/16 in Huntington Beach. I am the team, “Walk for a Cure” which is supporting a dear friend of ours, Steve a Disney Imagineer who was diagnosed with the early stages of Alzheimers. This is my third year helping with getting donations (Tax Exemptions) and my second year actually going down and doing the walk with Steve and his driving force Gincy (his wife).
Last year I collected $800.00 with a goal of $500.00 so thank you to everyone who donated in 2015. I told Gincy and Steve that this year I wanted to break $1000.00. I am sure with all your help again We can break that figure. So far we are sitting at $235 – $250. To donate to either myself or directly to, “Walk for a Cure” just go to:
Please help find a cure for this horrible disease. The Alzheimer’s disease is an irreversible, progressive brain disorder that slowly destroys memory and thinking skills, and eventually the ability to carry out the simplest tasks. In most people with Alzheimer’s, symptoms first appear in their mid-60s. Estimates vary, but experts suggest that more than 5 million Americans may have Alzheimer’s. Alzheimers is the 6th leading cause of death in the United States. *
Thank you all in advance for reading this post and to all of you who help by donating to help find a cure for this disease. Many are thankful for your kindness.
