Last week he terrified my wife and me when he disappeared for eight hours. It turns out; he had gone to the store and couldn’t remember where he was when he came out. After hours of wandering around the strip mall, an employee noticed that something was not right, and asked my dad if everything was okay. It was obvious to the worker that my dad was very confused so she notified the police. Luckily, the responding officer was familiar with issues of dementia and did a great job of calming my dad down. He was able to get my dad to show him an I.D. and from there, track us down to come get him. We can’t stop imagining how badly this could have turned out if not for the Good Samaritan store worker and the knowledgeable police officer. What can we do to make sure this doesn’t happen again? - Relieved but worried son Dear Relieved but worried, • Wants to fulfill former obligations, he can participate in daily.

The walk is more than an event, it’s more than a fundraiser and it’s more than a social gathering; so much more. It is a time set aside for remembrance, for grief and for hope. I remember those who have lost the battle with Alzheimer’s and those who are in the midst of it. I grieve for the losses that families and loved ones have suffered. And I hope for a better future, one that holds answers to a cure. I walk in honor of my grandmother and of the literal hundreds of individuals I have worked with professionally. I walk as an example to my daughters. And I walk to someday end Alzheimer’s.” - Mary Galvez MA, CMC, NCG Alzheimer’s Association New Mexico Chapter Board Member Guardianship and Care Management Services Albuquerque, NM “As the director of an Alzheimer’s Program, I see the devastation of this disease every day. I watch families and friends grieve a little every time their loved one doesn’t remember something that was once so important. A name, a birthday, an event, or even time that was spent together just yesterday. I walk because IT MATTERS, THEY MATTER, and I CAN’T make a cure, I CAN’T make a prevention, but I CAN Educate, I CAN talk about it, and I CAN WALK!” - Bonnie Zeiler, LPN Las Cruces Walk Committee Member Village at Northrise~Director of Alzheimer’s Services Las Cruces, NM “Why do I participate in the Walk to End Alzheimer’s? I do it to honor my father Jose Campos Varela, who was my hero. I participate to bring awareness to a disease that is difficult to accept especially in the Latin culture. I want to bring attention that we are not alone in our quest to find a cure. I participate to be visible to others who may be struggling with Alzheimer’s in a family member. I want to make myself available to others who may need a shoulder to lean on. My hero was always there for me when I struggled; he was there when I needed a strong shoulder to lean on.” - Hipólitalisia Varela de Gutierrez Team Grampo Joe Dexter, NM “The Alzheimer’s walk was a great experience and a wonderful way to create awareness and unite the community.” - Dr. Nery Diaz Resident Psychiatrist UNM School of Medicine Albuquerque, NM “I walk for the friend I’ve lost and for my friend who just begun their long goodbye” - Jane Gunter 2011 Corporate Walk Chair-Los Alamos Walk Los Alamos, NM 13 The Woodmark at Uptown Encourages Activity and Independence The Woodmark at Uptown is ideally located in hour away, and nearby Interstates 25 and 40 make it Albuquerque’s Uptown neighborhood, with fantastic convenient and easy to go anywhere.

Talk about creative “fun”draising… these creative ladies sold handmade jewelry, held bake sales, and asked EVERY person they could to help support their efforts. Year after year, this family team not only helps raise funds, but they volunteer as a family the day of the Albuquerque walk to help raise awareness. Two of “Eleanor’s Angels” talented and craft wise members, Judy Marsh and Karen Shackleford, made this beautiful quilt that hangs in our Albuquerque office to memorialize our past walks shirts. We cannot thank them enough for this amazing gift! Because they have been personally affected by the disease, the quilt was made in honor of their family members that lost their battle to Alzheimer’s-Doris, Grace, Lucille, John, Richard, Jan and Eleanor. Pictured above are Pictured left to right, Judy Marsh, Kim O’Roark, Emily Judy and Karen presenting their one of a kind gift to the O’Roark, Lindsay O’Roark and Morgan O’Roark Association...we appreciate all your hard work!
