Tara Stroman and Lindsey Simbeye: A beautiful sight

What a day! Our hearts are overflowing with gratitude for all the people from across Northwest Colorado who showed up to support the Walk to End Alzheimer’s on Sept. 3.

As co-chairs, we were a bit worried about turnout when we woke up to dark clouds that continued to gather, and rain that threatened to dampen the opening ceremony. Yet, despite the weather, the community rallied and helped raise more than $25,000 for the Alzheimer’s Association, which will be used toward continuing support, advocacy, education and research to benefit those in our community, our nation and worldwide who suffer from all forms of memory loss. 

It was truly a beautiful sight to see all of the wonderful purple-shirted walkers holding colorful promise flowers, in the calm reflection of Casey’s Pond on a cool fall morning.  It was a heartfelt gathering of friends and families, celebrating the possibility of a world where Alzheimer’s may someday be just a memory.

With deepest appreciation, we recognize the amazing contributions from Danielle Hastings at the Fort Collins chapter office, Stephanie for the homemade cake, KBCR, the United Methodist Church, the caring staff at Casey’s Pond and all of the donors and volunteers who made this walk a great journey indeed.
