Weekend Recap: #ENDALZ: Memory Walk 2018

Hello everyone!  Here's hoping your weekend was wonderful!

It was an absolutely beautiful day for our family to walk to end Alzheimer’s. We woke up early, donned our purple, had a bit of breakfast in the chill of the morning and then headed out for a great time.

Weekend Recap: Let’s #ENDALZ

Hello everyone! This weekend was one of the most important and meaningful events in my family’s calendar. This weekend, we participated in the annual Walk to End Alzheimer’s. This walk raises awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s research and has the ultimate goal of one day discovering a cure for the disease. For those of you who have been following for a while, you know that Alzheimer’s runs pretty heavily on the maternal side of my family and strikes our females ferociously. I’ve seen it take my great-grandmother, great-great grandmother, a host of great-aunts, and cousins. It’s so prevalent that I find myself a bit nervous when I can’t remember things. I’ve been leaning toward genetic testing to see if this disease may be in my future, but for now I’m moving forward to see if we can’t find a cure.

Yesterday morning, we woke up, donned our purple, and made our way over to the city pavilion to prepare for the walk.  I was nervous about getting there on time as our little lady waited until we were just about out the door to decide she wanted to nurse.  No amount of formula would sway here.  Fifteen minutes later, we were out the door and about forty minutes later made our way to the Pavilion.
