Steve and I are participating in the Walk to End Alzheimer’s next month at Knott’s Berry Farm. Last year I walked and Steve worked at the Advocacy booth. I am the captain of team, “Walk for the Health of It!”, named with the assistance of our teenaged son. Being captain doesn’t mean anything more than when I send out fundraising e-mails, I include a link in case they would like to join our team. So far our team has five people, and currently our son is not one of them.
The location for the walk makes it fun because we walk through Knott’s Berry Farm, an amusement park, before it is open. The walkways are wide, so there is a lot of room for all the participants.
I will also be the speaker at this walk. I need to prepare and submit what I am going to say. So far I think I’ve written two sentences. I’m trying to keep what I say geared to the entire group rather than specific to Steve. My goal is to finish and submit my first draft this month so that it is approved well in advance of the October 27th walk.
The Walk to End Alzheimer’s is held all over the country, with many walks being held this month, World Alzheimer’s Month. Whether you Walk to End Alzheimer’s or walk for another reason, walking is one of the best exercises for the body and the brain. Whatever your reason, I encourage you to “Walk for the Health of It!”
