Late this afternoon, as I walk for two-and-a-half hours through downtown Chicago, I will be thinking about all three of them. They are why I work for the Alzheimer’s Association, and why I am participating in the Alzheimer’s Association Longest Day™. I am committed to fundraising for people with Alzheimer’s because I want to make sure families and individuals affected by this disease receive needed support and resources. I am proud to be part of an organization that is there for people when they seek help.
I have a hope that one day, we will find a cure for Alzheimer’s and can celebrate that no one else has to live through this disease. It will take endurance to get to the finish line, but we can see an end to The Longest Day.
