Walk for Alzheimer's

I recently added that Alzheimer's ribbon to my sidebar, which was a really easy way to donate $10 to the Alzheimer's Association. I was also reminded that it's time to start preparing for the Alzheimer's Memory Walk. The Memory Walk is the nation's largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer care, support and research. Since 1989, the Memory Walk has raised more than $230 million. Volunteers of all ages can participate and help in the fight against Alzheimer's.

Walks are held in more than 600 cities across the country, and it's easy to find one near you. Simply type in your zip code to find cities and dates. Become a team captain and create your own team or find a team to join, and then get started raising funds. The web site has all the tools to help. It sounds easy - sign up as a team with your friends and family, set up a website, set a fundraising goal and start emailing everyone asking for help and support, and then walk to make a difference.
