charity organizatons and nonprofits are being hit hard by the covid 19 pandemic
almost all of the alzheimers organizations depend on our donations to operate 
these organizations are the reason why we are making the advances we are making in alzheimers treatment and alzheimers care

we cant forget them as the covid 19 pandemic hovers over all of us

this year the walk to end alzheimers here in santa barbara will still happen

here is how
at 1000am on saturday november 7 2020 there will be a virtual opening ceremony and a promise garden ceremony 
then afterwards each individual teams members will then walk in the area where they live the designated distance which is usually 2-3 miles
afterwards the closing ceremony will be done virtually

our team organicgreendoctor will each walk by themselves
my wife she and i will don our purple alzheimers tshirts and do our 3 mile walk in our neighborhood
then we will return home to watch the closing ceremonies

i dont know yet if i will talk at the opening ceremonies yet but i will if asked

this is our gap year for the alzheimers walks
we want it to be as successful as possible to bridge us to next years hopefully live event

alzheimers disease didnt take a day off during the covid 19 pandemic
its still here
granted alzheimers patients are in the group of folks who have been ravaged the most by this disease
many have died from it
