A Walk For The Ages
Zoe (and I) will be participating in ‘A Walk For The Ages’, a fundraiser organized by Baycrest hospital to raise awareness about Alzheimer’s Disease. Donations will target Alzheimer’s research.
It will be held at Canada’s favourite theme park, Canada’s Wonderland and our friends at Baycrest hospital were so gracious to offer us a booth. Proceeds from each book sale on the day of the event will be going toward my portion of the fundraiser! 🎉🎉🎉🎉
I was quite surprised to learn there are over 50 million people worldwide 65 years and older who are living with this condition and it is also the 5th cause of mortality within the same cohort.
There is still no cure, however, research is making advancements with slowing down the symptoms and there is hope that we can get eventually get to the point where it is eradicated.
This condition hits close to home as my family has also been affected. I love someone who is living with Alzheimer’s disease. My goal is to raise $1800 by September 19th and I hope you can help me get there. Your donation is greatly appreciated.
