In 2011 my wife's grandmother was diagnosed with a for of Alzheimer's and over the years I have seen the impacts it not only had on her but the entire family. Faced with the impact this disease has had on our family made me sit and think of how many other families are out there in this same situation and after some quick research the numbers were hurtful to bear. After having this on my mind for many months I decided that the only way to feel at ease is if I made an effort to help with this disease in a meaningful way. This is where I came up with the idea to walk across the United States raising money and growing awareness for Alzheimer's. In order to embark on this journey I first will need to raise money to fund the trip itself. I am asking for $5,000 dollars to fund my trip across the United States to raise money for Alzheimer's and would be extremely grateful for any and all donations. Thank you all!
