Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s in Abilene

Credit: Catherine Yeulet

Alzheimer’s is something I take personally, both my grandmother and my granddad had the disease. My great aunts suffered with it and it’s not pretty. It takes away the ‘person’ you loved, strips their memory away and leaves but a shell of the person that once was so full of life. Through research though we may hopefully, one day, can find a cure. Abilene will be hosting a 2 mile walk to help bring awareness and funding to the cause.

Following the walk there will be refreshments and festivities and best of all the event is free to participants. Here are all the details on how you can get involved in this year’s Walk.
