13.1 miles were ran, more like jogged, to fundraise for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society at Walt Disney World on January 12th, 2019. It was in my Lolo’s memory and for a friend, Sandra, and my #Instafriend’s father. Nine months later, I will be walking to end Alzheimer’s in Silicon Valley. I usually do some kind of fundraising at least once a year. This walk will be much less strenuous on my body but still for a good cause.
On Saturday, October 12th, I invite you to please join me for this brief, 2-mile walk in Silicon Valley. If you can’t make the event, please donate to end Alzheimer’s via this LINK. Why this walk? My day job helps residents and caregivers in long-term facilities, commonly offering memory care assistance. On this past cruise, my roommate and I had breakfast with two ladies one morning. They now travel together because they both had husbands that no longer know who they are. Imagine living decades together, through all the struggles relationships inevitably bring and the love of your life now has no recollection. It’s pretty sad. I am trying to live my best life and write about it along the way. Maybe one day, I too, won’t remember I zip lined above fields of agave plants in Mazatlan, met kangaroos in Australia, stood on top of Mt. Etna and had a lot of champagne in Champagne! Hope you join me!
