Why I Walk – Jennifer Reynolds

My name is Jennifer Reynolds, and I walk for my community. My first Walk was in 1995, so this year will mark my 19th Walk to End Alzheimer’s! The Walk and Alzheimer’s are my passion. It is important to me that we keep Alzheimer’s in the forefront and have hope for the future.

I believe that knowledge and education are powerful, so I teach first responders the warning signs and symptoms of Alzheimer’s so that they are better equipped to handle those they treat.

I am also personally connected to the cause. My grandmother had Alzheimer’s and I can remember her just rhyming for hours on end. She passed away in 1985.

It is such a sad, awful disease, but we have to be hopeful that one day, we will all wake up to a world without Alzheimer’s.
Everyone has a reason to Walk. Walk for the future. Walk for your children’s future. Everyone knows someone that is affected by Alzheimer’s. Start small if you have to. Just get involved and Walk!
