Teams Needed For Bangor Walk To End Alzheimer’s

Subscribe to WQCB Brewer Maine on

The Alzheimer’s Association of Maine is signing up teams and taking donations for its Bangor Walk to End Alzheimer’s, coming up in October.

No one called more attention to the cruelty of Alzheimer’s than Country icon Glen Campbell, who passed away Tuesday from the disease. Between the documentary ‘I’ll Be Me’ that showed how his cognition and sense of reality were affected, and the song ‘I’m Not Gonna Miss You,’ he broke our hearts with the honesty of what the disease was doing to him. I encourage anyone who hasn’t seen the documentary, to do so. It’s hard to watch the deterioration of such an amazing talent, but gives an amazing look into the realities of Alzheimer’s.

On October 21st, teams will gather on the Bangor waterfront to call attention to the disease and to raise money for research. So far, 48 teams have registered but, since the walk isn’t until October, there’s still plenty of time for more to sign up. All the money raised will help further the care, support, and research efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association. And all the donations are tax deductible.

For details on the race and how you can get involved, log onto the website for the 2017 Walk To End Alzheimer’s.
