walking helps

it helps two ways
walking does

walking the least traumatic exercise and the least expensive form
of exercise
improves your health and related to alzheimers disease it increases
the blood flow to the brain cells
which improves memory and may help
slow down or prevent the onset of alzheimers disease

this last week while in san francisco one observation i made was
that you dont see hardly any morbidly obese people
maybe because more people walk there than most places
maybe because of all those dang hills


they also walk to end alzheimers there
as evidenced by this sign advertising their walk to end alzheimers
in san francisco

this second way walking helps alzheimers is that it raises money for
alzheimers research and for alzheimers education
its the major way that the alzheimers associaton raises money to
do all they do

go to www.alz.org to find a walk near you
all states have them

the walk that i am most involved in is the
williamson county walk to end alzheimers 
which will be on saturday september 27, 2014 at 900 am
at the beautiful san gabriel park in georgetown texas

my team called
is now asking for donations and asking for folks to join us
in that walk

our goal is $3000
we will have an online silent auction that starts next thursday
to raise $1000
click here or go to www.32auctions.com/ogd to preview our
first items

so you can walk to end alzheimers in two ways
for yourself
by getting walking exercise increasing your brains
blood supply
for others
by raising funds for research and education

we are so close to being able to treat this disease
we cant do it without your help
