Walking to help provide FREE social services for caregivers caring for persons with Alzheimer's, dementia, Autism and Down syndrome.
I will be walking at the 10th annual Alzheimer's Walk and Family Fall Festival on November 6th at Lake Ella in Tallahassee, FL. I am walking to raise money to support the free local services that this agency provides to the LOCAL community and EVERY penny STAYS here in the local community to help caregivers. I am walking to raise money for the hundreds of local families we serve. I am walking to help families living with Alzheimer's and dementia as well as families caring for children with Autism, Down syndrome and Asperger's syndrome. I am walking because my family has been touched by Alzheimer's and this horrible disease claimed the lives of both my Aunt Jenny and my Grandma Mary Alice. I am walking because my nephew Joey has been struggling for 10 years against the tyranny of Autism AND he is winning! The stories of the people we serve are without a doubt AWE inspiring. These beautifully humble people do everyday what most of us can scarcely imagine. We can never really know or appreciate their daily trials but WE CAN help make a difference in their lives. Thank you for your support. Bill
