Why I Walk - Walk to End Alzheimer's Stories


Stories are gifts. Share them!

That's why we've started the "Why I Walk" page on our Chapter website.

This is your forum for sharing your "Why I Walk" story.

We all have our reasons. Below you will find quotes as well as stories from Walk to End Alzheimer's™ participants.

Mothers, brothers, daughters, frontline caregivers, neighbors, volunteers – all with a common purpose of raising awareness about Alzheimer's and related dementias as well as raising funds for care, support and research.

"Two years ago, I began walking as part of our company team…now it's more personal. My mother has Alzheimer's. We are all walking to help find a cure."
-- Pacific Northwest (Seattle) Walk participant

"I walk in memory of my Dad, for whom I was caregiver until he passed of Alzheimer's in June 2008. Last year, the Walk happened to be held on Dad's birthday, which attracted family members, and it was a kind of like a birthday party for him!"
-- South Sound (Tacoma) Walk participant
