Life can often throw hurdles to get in your way, for me and my family Alzheimer’s has been a huge hurdle and has impacted our lives immensely after my mum was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s a few years ago, regrettably she is now in the later stages of this horrible disease that has stripped her of precious memories and so much more. There is currently no cure for Alzheimer’s and despite it affecting more people than ever before, due to an ageing population, it is the least funded with charitable donations. This is why I decided to complete an Alzheimer’s walk to raise awareness and money for this worthy cause. I completed “Trek 26” in August this year with my husband Jay, together we both walked 13 miles, which is half a marathon around Stonehenge in Salisbury. The Trek was hard, up and down hills and over rough terrain and with little preparation my legs were sore for days after. However, I am overwhelmed to announce that in total my husband and I raised £750 for the Alzheimer’s society, with generous donations being made by staff at Greens Solicitors, who supported me in undertaking this challenge. To assist me along the way and to ensure I completed the Trek, the Greens Solicitors mascot teddy bear came with me, although he didn’t do much walking and was carried in my backpack he managed to feature in most of the photos taken on the day. The money raised will go to help those who live with Alzheimer’s by providing care, support and funding groundbreaking research to hopefully eradicate it completely.
