ALZHEIMER'S WALK

You never know the impact of a few simple words....my email signature includes the following:
Proud participant in the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative. Get involved at: www.alzquilts.org


It helped to inspire our insurance agent (on the right) to form a team for a local event: Walk To End Alzheimer's.


There were a dozen or more teams and many participants brought their 4 legged friends.


We walked the 2 1/2 mile path around Lake Junaluska, NC....a beautiful setting......that allowed
a serene setting for a few moments of reflection.

Walkers strung out all along the pathway.....it was quite inspiring and the event successfully raised needed funds to find a cure for Alzheimer's.

Don't forget, AAQI is bringing 1,077 quilts to Houston for this year's silent auction....if you are going, consider bidding on a piece. You can get involved in so many other ways.....click on the link above to learn how.
