Weekend Recap

Despite a chilly start, the Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s was outstanding!  Z102.9’s Overnight Kim started off the walk with three very inspiring stories from two young Alzheimer’s supporters, a woman who’s husband passed away from Alzheimer’s and a beautiful story about a woman who is her husband’s caretaker.

After registering everyone was given a flower in one of four colors.  Blue if you have Alzheimer’s, purple if you know someone with Alzheimer’s, yellow if you are a caretaker of someone with Alzheimer’s and orange if you support the cause.  While participants were walking, those flowers were used for a very beautiful display at the Promise Garden when we returned.

Here is a look at Saturday’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s in Cedar Rapids:

I’m always looking for ways to support charitable organizations!  If you are having an event or want some help promoting your team, please contact me by sending me an email charitableconnections@gmail.com, on Facebook or Twitter.  I would be more than happy to get the word out about your event or participate, so please let me know what I can do to help.
