I have been meeting all kinds of people since starting this goal who are running for Alzheimer’s Awareness. There’s a gentleman (Jack Fussell) @acrosstheland in Georgia. He and his running “partner” Wilson are running to California, yes, you read that right-he’s running from Georgia to California, to raise Alzheimer’s Awareness. I also found and started following another gentleman (Keith Waite) @4GDad whose running 1000 miles in 2013 to raise Alzheimer’s Awareness. 1000 miles!!! Keith also adds a purple ribbon to his race shirt for every person affected by Alzheimer’s. This week he added my mom. Thanks Keith for honoring my mom with a ribbon.
Wow, I’m just blown away by these other guys and their goals for 2013. And I thought my goal was huge. You gotta check out their Blogs, follow em on twitter, and watch their progress. I know there are more folks out there fighting this disease and I’d love to meet you all. Come by, say “hi” and tell me your story.
