Walk to End Alzheimer's a success
I can not Thank You enough to all of you that came, to those that donated, and even the ones of you that couldn't do either, but verbally gave us your support.
This is the Memory Garden. We could write a message on the pedals, whatever we wanted, and while we were walking the staff "planted" our pinwheel flowers. It was so pretty. Although the wind only caught the wheels a few times, when it did it was beautiful.
The yellow ones stood for caregivers, the blue were for those suffering with Alzheimer's, and the purple were for In Memory Of the loved ones already gone.
This is the front. I saw this design on a different shirt and loved the meaning. Hope, always there. Love, because we all love. And Cure, because there needs to be one for this disease.
Our neighbor, and friend, made these shirts. It was a very last minute idea, and next year I am going to have many made to supply everyone that wants to come walk for our team. He did a terrific job! If anyone wants this design, or any other shirt, you can contact him,
He graciously made these last minute for us, and gave us a huge discount because it was for this cause.
