Why I Walk with Theresa Sawyer, Team captain of Edward Jones-Forget- Me- Nots Virginia Beach
I’m leading the way to Alzheimer’s first survivor by participating in the Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s®. I witnessed the effects this disease had on my grandfather and all his family as he suffered from Alzheimer’s. It is not an easy ordeal for anyone involved. Currently, more than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer’s and that number is expected to grow to as many as 16 million by 2050. Our future is at risk unless we can find a way to change the course of this disease.
I am so proud of my company, EDWARD JONES, in becoming the national sponsor for the Alzheimer’s Association. I am honored to join my fellow associates and community members in these walks around our country. I will be walking for my grandfather, Jimmy Owens, and all the others I know that have faced this disease.
I hope you will join us at alz.org/walk!
