I was very happy that I was able to participate in the November 10th Alzheimer’s walk! This walk was my first 5k and it will not be my last. I do some running when I workout outside of practice so I did choose to jog instead of walk this event, but I didn’t want to run too fast because we had a beautiful view right beside the beach!
Prior to the run we got the opportunity to mingle and take pictures with a lot of the participants. To see how much support these people were bringing was amazing – team shirts and banners were everywhere! My favorite part of the morning was when I was running back from the half-way marker, and I started to pass all the participants, we cheered and high-fived as I passed them. The event left the cheerleaders feeling so good to have been able to not only see but be a part of this cause and get to do it with some of our teammates.
