Who Do You Want Us to Walk For?

The Alzheimer's Association Cleveland Chapter created these great "Why I Walk" videos for the Walk to End Alzheimer's which is coming up in just over a month. I love watching these videos to see all the reasons why people walk, and usually there is always at least one person they are honoring by walking. A family member, a friend, a neighbor, a coworker.

I want to know who you want us to walk for. We are walking for my Mom and grandmother and I will put their names on my walk shirt, but there is a whole lot of room for other names!

Tell me who you want me to add to my shirt.  Either comment below or send me an email at katie@movinginwithdementia.com

The end of Alzheimer's starts with us.

  1. Hi Katie,
    Please put my Grandmother's name, Charlotte McKenzie, on your shirt. We lost her to Alzheimer's 2 years ago. Also, is there a way we can sponsor the walk?

  2. Hi Erika,
    I would be honored to put your grandmothers name on my shirt!

    You can donate to the walk here http://2011Walktoendalz.kintera.org/clevelandwest/ktendalz

    or on that page you also have the option to join our team and walk with us.

    Hi Katie,
    I'm walking with you for your Mom and your family but as the donations come in from my family can you please add: Esther Meyer Emerick (my Mom), Dorothy Szekeress (my aunt), Genevieve Busche (my aunt), Alice Steiner (my aunt and Godmother), Leon Meyer (my uncle), Larry Socha (my uncle), Jerry Allain (my uncle) and Sharon Meyer (my aunt).
    Thanks to you and your Dad for giving me a way to finally get involved in this important work.
    Blessings to you,
