I’m going to Raise Awareness !!

I am going to tell as many people as I can find, on my trip across the country, about the help the Alzheimers Association has available for people dealing with alzheimers.

I am going to tell people to please contact our law makers and tell them we need help.

I can do these two things and I will do these two things.

I do not know how to raise money. The purple button will still be on my website.
I cannot make a bold statement about raising money but I can make a bold statement about raising awareness !!

I just did !!

Don’t run, you might get hurt

I had a couple stop me on the stairs today. He said he wanted to ask two questions.

1) how old are you?
63, soon to be 64

2) have you ever fell?
yes I have, a few times

To that he said. “you shouldn’t do it then, you may get hurt”

I thought a moment and told him this. “I have lived THAT WAY, most of my life. I don’t want to live that way”

Yohance ran with me….

I asked him if he would do a short symbolic run up the paved road. He is a very encouraging young man. What an honor, for me, to get to run with him.

Danielle was very encouraging

I was sitting in the visitor center. This young lady came up and said “are you overheated sir?” I was pretty tired.

Her concern for someone she knew nothing about, was inspiring to me.

I asked her husband if he minded the picture. He did not mind at all.
