Why I Walk Wednesday with Sarah Smith

For me, 2016 marks ten years of volunteering with the Alzheimer’s Association and specifically, the Walk to End Alzheimer’s. I have witnessed lots of changes in those ten years. When I first volunteered as a team captain, my grandmother had been suffering from Alzheimer’s for close to ten years. I got involved with the Walk as a way to fight the disease that was stealing my beloved grandmother. Alzheimer’s ultimately took my grandmother from us completely and sadly, two more family members have also been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s.
