|Me, Coach Hatley and Sonny at The Wife's wedding reception|
A few weeks ago, The Wife and I went to an event hosted by the Alzheimer’s Association for Team Captain’s (and their guest). While there, I was approached and asked if I would be interested in being part of an Ad campaign the Alzheimer’s Association was running in The Charleston City Paper leading up to the 2016 Walk to End Alzheimer’s. I was told someone would email me and all they would need from me was a picture and a short (3 – 4 lines) of why I walk. Sounds pretty simple, right? As we left, I realized that while this will be the 10th Walk I’ve participated in (back when I started, it was called the Memory Walk), I really had no idea why I walk. I’d never really thought about it. I started because people in my office were doing it (back then I worked in an office that did Alzheimer’s research) and it just clicked for me. I’m not sure when the Ad will be in the paper (sometime within the next few weeks), but when it is I’ll be sure to share it on here.
