We Walked to End Alzheimer’s, and I Say “Thank You” and Share Pictures

My sister and I (with her husband and sons) Walk(ed) to End Alzheimer’s this past weekend. The Thousand Oaks, California walk raised over $105,000, and thanks to some very generous and caring family, friends, and readers of this blog, I was responsible for about 1% of that total.

I’ve sent individual thanks to everyone who donated to the Alzheimer’s Association through my Participant page, and I appreciate every dollar that they gave. But there are some people whose generosity went above and beyond, and I think they deserve special mention for their support…and even if they’d rather not be mentioned, I’m doing it anyway, because it’s my blog and I can. I hope you’ll join me in expressing my appreciation for:

my mother-in-law, Peggy
Jessica Gottlieb, and the ladies of Moms LA who rose to her personal challenge: Donna, Marsha, Sarah, Ciaran, Eva, Jeanne, Natalie, Lori, Adrienne, Jeannine, Becky, Amy, Yolanda, Deborah, and Shannon
Joy, whose donation pushed me just a little ways over my fundraising goal

The Walk began and ended on the lovely campus of California Lutheran University in Thousand Oaks
Walk participants were given flowers on which to write the names of those they were honoring by walking. Organizers and volunteers planted them in a garden that greeted us when we returned to campus.
