After a 15+ year struggle with early onset Alzheimer's, my sweet mother, Lynn, finally succumbed to the disease at the relatively young age of 72 in October 2018. In the last few years of her life, I was called to educate myself on the disease and pledged to do anything and everything I could to help further the cause to find a cure. I became a Certified Community Educator through the Alzheimer's Association, and have been involved in fundraising for research, personally raising nearly $10,000 in the last two years. Although my mother is no longer with us, I continue to champion the cause in her memory.

Story

This community event brings together businesses and residents from Glynn county and surrounding areas to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer's and dementia research and local support services. This family-friendly event takes place at the St. Simons Pier Village and provides something for everyone. Attendees will  honor and remember their loved ones in Neptune Park before participating in either a 1-mile or 2-mile walk through beautiful St. Simons.

Proceeds from the Golden Isles Alzheimer's Walk benefit Memory Matters Glynn, a local independent 501(c)(3) non-profit organization located in Brunswick, Ga. offering education, social activities for persons with memory impairment, individual consultations, memory screening and support groups in Glynn County and research efforts through the Goizueta Alzheimer's Disease Research Center at Emory University in Atlanta, Ga., one of 27 active centers in the nation supported by the National Institutes of Health.
