RunnersAlzheimer's Awareness Walk/Run Successful

It was a beautiful cool morning on Saturday, June 14th, 2014 when about 200 runners and walkers plus business and organization exhibitors demonstrated their support of Alzheimer's Awareness at Visalia's Plaza Park. 

The Senior Living Network Alzheimer's Walk/Run proceeds benefit three wonderful non-profit organizations: UCSF Fresno Memory Center, Alzheimer's Foundation of Central California, and Porterville Adult Day Services.There are approximately 65,000 families that are touch by Alzheimer's in the San Joaquin Valley!

I was a proud volunteer, receiving more than I gave,  personing one of the water tables a long the route.

Good morning, Virginia....this is a fund raiser that is very important to so many.... this illness is horrible and we're all headed that way, especially as people are living longer...

Thanks Barbara Todaro, as I mentioned I received more from helping than the time I spent.  I volunteer almost monthly at an Assisted Living Center, it's important to me.
