I am incredibly excited to be running my 2nd Boilermaker this year! Even more so because I am rasing money to support a very specific project here at the Masonic Care Community - Linked Senior http://www.linkedsenior.com.
Several years ago I began to witness the devestating effects of dementia as it consumed my hero, my grandpa, and how the disease engulfed not only him, but my family as we watched him drift away. I know first hand what a tool like Linked Senior could do for families and their loved ones to bridge the ocean of disconnect in communication and understanding.
As the Employee Wellness Coordinator for this great community I take pride in helping those who are caring for our residents. I've been blessed to have gotten to know a number of our residents and several have run away with my heart.
If I have learned anything in my time here it is that we are the home to great people, we employ great people and we can continue to go great things.
And if I have learned anything from my grandfather's journey into dementia it is that love cannot be confined by the boundaries of dementia. A few Christmases ago I sat next to him, holding his hand, he turned to me and said "I don't know who you are but I know I love you very much."
Please, help me raise money towards this wonderful project so others have a means to connect!
THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME AND YOUR DONATION!
