Mom & I have started a team for the upcoming Memory Walk. Please join us on October 11 at Bonita Lakes to raise money for the ALzheimer's foundation and walk in honor and memory of our loved ones. Here's the letter I have sent out to recruit team members and donations...

As you may know, Our family had a loved one who has been affected by Alzheimer''s. My grandmother, Mary Inez Martin suffered with the disease for nearly a decade. She passed away on February 27, 2002. My grandfather, Paul Martin, was recently diagnosed with Frontaltemporal Dementia. Because my family and I have seen firsthand the impact this disease has, we are participating in the Alzheimer''s Association Memory Walk®.
Funds raised through Memory Walk help support scientific investigations into better treatments and a possible cure for Alzheimer’s. And for the millions already affected by the disease, Memory Walk donations help to provide care, support and education programs.
Please help us make a difference by supporting our team with a donation.
Thank you in advance for your support.

Please come out and support us on Oct. 11. If you're unable to, please contribute a donation to the research for a cure.

Here's a link to our team page where you can join up and donate.
