About the Walk
Walk to End Alzheimer’s unites the entire community — more than 450,000 participants that include family, friends, co-workers, social and religious groups and more — in a display of combined strength and dedication in the fight against this devastating disease. While there is no fee to register, each participant is expected to fundraise in order to contribute to the cause and raise awareness. The Alzheimer’s Association provides free, easy-to-use tools and staff support to help each participant reach their fundraising goal.
When you participate in Walk, your fundraising dollars fuel our mission-related initiatives of care, support and research. In addition, your actions, both through fundraising and participating in the event, help to change the level of Alzheimer’s awareness in your community. Take the first step to a world without Alzheimer’s by finding a Walk near you. Once you register, you will have access to a wide range of tools and support through your Participant Center, ensuring a successful and fulfilling experience.
To eliminate Alzheimer’s disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health.
A world without Alzheimer’s disease.
We had the honor of working with the Kevin Pearce Fund last summer when “The Crash Reel” was released by HBO, as well as working on the Simon Pearce website to introduce the KP loveyourbrain bowl to support the KP fund to help support families who face traumatic brain injuries. Kevin is an inspiration to everyone who knows him.
From the Nat Geo website: “After a traumatic head injury, a snowboarder finds new ways to lead his community. In one year, snowboarder Kevin Pearce went from standing atop podiums at the X Games to relearning how to brush his own teeth after a traumatic brain injury. The one thing that never changed was Pearce’s commitment to the snowboarding community.” Here’s a link to the full story: http://adventure.nationalgeographic.com/adventure/adventurers-of-the-year/2014/kevin-pearce/
Please see this important film. It will change your life.

The Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth (known as CHaD) holds a special place in the hearts of many families in New England, not the least of which is mine. Both of my own children were patients there. Trillium Digital is a long-time supporter. So when I first saw this video on Tuesday evening, (ok, I watched it about 4 times in a row), I noticed that it already had about 12,000 hits and thought, “Wow, that’s pretty good!” And then I shared it. And so did about a million other people. This, my friends, is the very definition of social media going viral. As of today it already has well over a million views on YouTube, and the story has been picked up by national news outlets like CNN, People.com, Huffington Post and Buzzfeed.
It has everything – a catchy anthem, powerful images of brave kids and loving caregivers, and an inspirational message of hope. And it compels you to share it. Go ahead – you know you want to!
You can make a donation to support the kids of CHaD at bit.ly/17ItdRv.

Now if you’ll excuse me I have a video to watch about 100 more times.
Update: As of March 2014, this video has over 4 million views! Now that’s the way to do it! I know I’ll never hear this song again without picturing this CHaD video (Sorry, Katy). Congratulations to everyone involved!
