Did you ever grow anything in the garden of your mind?


Watch this video and always remember to LIVE YOUNG.

Wednesday, September 11, 2013


 Today, I spent a lot of time reflecting on the tragic event that happened on September 11, 2001. It started with a moment of silence at work and continued throughout the day in conversations with students that were not fully clear on the significance of the terrorist attack and the importance of our resolve, turning tragedy into triumph. We don't remember this day because of buildings falling. We remember this day because of people rising. May we always remember the victims of the 9/11 terrorist attack and honor the memory of the heroes that emerged on that day. Welles Crowther was one of those heroes, and this is his story. I will never look at a red bandana the same way again. Now, it is a symbol of something much greater. If ever called upon to be the hero and save the day, may we all aspire to wear a red bandana. Thank you, Welles! #19

See the impact of Alzheimer’s among everyone at the Walk and how it has touched the lives of so many. Don’t forget to pick up a flower after registration so you can take part in the ceremony. You don’t need to memorize the colors as there will be volunteers to guide you, but each color represents a different journey of Alzheimer’s disease.

Yellow- I am a caregiver for someone with Alzheimer’s
Orange- I am an advocate against Alzheimer’s and support the cause
WALK!! - The moment you’ve all been waiting for… the Walk! Take off with your fellow Alzheimer’s Association supporters along the Walk Route. Not up for the walk? That’s okay… stay back and enjoy the music, the sights, and cheer on the crowd!
Doggies are welcome! Please bring your four-legged friend along for the day.
Walk Route - We are currently updating our Walk Route for 2013, stay tuned!

In-Kind Needs
The goal of the Walk to End Alzheimer’s is to maximize funding that supports vital research, and local programs and services. In order to do so we underwrite Walk expenses through both cash and in-kind donations. Year after year many donations are made to each Walk that help ensure our expenditures are kept at a minimum. Please contact Keely Boyle at 800-272-3900 or if you are interested in supporting the Walk to End Alzheimer's with an in-kind donation. Thank you for your support!
We're walking to help reclaim the future for millions. By participating in the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's, we're committed to raising awareness and funds for Alzheimer research, care and support.

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.
We need YOU! 
We're need your support to do my part! Please make a donation to help the Alzheimer's 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 joining our movement!
The end of Alzheimer's disease starts here.
