On Sunday, May 1st, I volunteered for a very good cause: Alzheimer’s disease.  Did you know that 1 in 4 Canadians over the age of 85 will get Alzheimer’s?

In total, $10,000 was raised by participants in this year’s Walk for Memories.  A caregiver and her husband who suffers from Alzheimer’s gave a very moving presentation, and then we were off to Dundarave pier and back.  Teams of staff from Sunrise and Nurses Next Door held their banners high.

Gulls, kayakers, seadoos, and joggers were all out there enjoying the sunshine.

It is a very worthy cause indeed.
