Barbara Monteith – Why I Walk

16 Jul

I walk to honor my mother who has sacrificed seven years to this disease.

I walk to raise awareness of Alzheimer’s and to encourage people to speak more freely about this disease.

I walk to raise money to support the programs and services that the Alzheimer’s Association provides to families living with this disease.

I walk to raise money for Alzheimer’s research, believing that one day we will have a method for prevention or cure for this disease.

I walk for my children in the hopes that neither of them will lose a parent to this awful disease.
