I will be walking and am looking to reach my personal goal of $1,000. Please help me reach my goal by donating here: http://memorywalk09.kintera.org/longisland/katekearney
Here is more information about the walk from the Alzheimer's Association:
The Alzheimer's Association Memory Walk® is the nation's largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer care, support and research – and it calls on volunteers of all ages to become champions in the fight against this fatal disease. Since 1989, Memory Walk has raised more than $260 million for the cause.
Memory Walk is a community event that joins friends, family and co-workers as they walk to end Alzheimer’s. Participants typically register in teams of 10-12 and fundraise using tools supported by the Alzheimer’s Association. Walks vary from one to three miles and are held in nearly 600 locations nationwide.
Please join us in taking steps to end Alzheimer's.
Long Island Memory Walk, Saturday - September 12th, 2009 - Registration/Breakfast begins at 8:30 a.m. Old Bethpage Village Restoration, Old Bethpage, NY (LIE Exit 46).
