Why I Walk with Ann Bolen

Why I Walk Wednesday- Ann bolen

I’m walking to help reclaim the future for millions. By participating in the Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s®, I’m committed to raising awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s research, care, and support. Our family has been personally touched by “ALZ” and the year has been fraught with changes.  Roger, my husband of 34 years is fighting to maintain his independence and our life together. Our team, Peers and Partners-VB, is the monthly support group for Virginia Beach. Together we learn about “AL” and support each other. Our friends in this group have become our closest supporters- One can’t know the devastation of this disease until you walk in our shoes.

I need your support to do my part! Please make a donation to help the Alzheimer’s Association advance research into methods of treatment, prevention and, ultimately, a cure for Alzheimer’s.  For the millions already affected by the disease, the Association offers care, education, support and resources in communities nationwide. Every little bit helps but your support means the world.  If you don’t wish to support, please let your elected officials know to wish them to support ALZ research.  THAT would mean a lot too.
