The End of Alzheimer's Starts with Me
Posted on February 06 2015
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.
WHY I WALK:
I became involved with the Sacramento Walk To End Alzheimer's thirteen years ago. My motivation? The day former President Ronald Regan passed away. I formed a team "Kelly's Heroes" in memory of my Grandfather Paul Lamoure who passed away with Alzheimer's.
When I first set out to educate myself about the disease I was astonished by how many people do not fully understand what Alzheimer's disease is. This is when I took the challenge from fellow Alzheimer's Champion, Maria Shriver... I decided to be a VOICE. I would help create awareness, and make Alzheimer's "Top-of-Mind".
This is the twelfth year that Team Kelly's Heroes will walk in the Sacramento Walk to End Alzheimer's! During the Walk To End Alzheimer's season it is truly amazing to see the thousands of heroes who are helping to change the course of Alzheimer's disease. I have been touched and honored at the generosity of the donations received which help support Alzheimer's Care and Research.
WHAT I DO TO HELP MAKE A DIFFERENCE
The Alzheimer’s Association needs our help year round, so not only do I walk with my team in the Sacramento Walk to End Alzheimer's, I try to participate in Advocacy programs throughout the year, create fun events benefiting the Northern California Alzheimer's Association and the Sacramento Walk to End Alzheimer's that gets our community involved.
Today I need your support to do my part! Please make a donation to help the Alzheimer'' Association advance research into prevention, treatments and a cure for Alzheimer's. For the millions already affected by the disease, the Association offers care, education, support and resources in communities nationwide.
Thank you for supporting our efforts! The end of Alzheimer's disease starts here!
