2019 Walk To End Alzheimer’s And Looking For Teammates


The 2019 Walk To End Alzheimer’s is coming up on Saturday, September 28th at Forestview Middle School in Baxter and my goal for this year is to add more people to my Team Tess Taylor.  At all previous walks, I have been proud to raise a lot of money for the cause, but I do think if there were more on my team, TOGETHER, WE CAN DO MORE!  I want to do everything I can to support the Alzheimer’s Association and its mission to find a cure for Alzheimer’s Disease.  I know I am NOT ALONE in this mission, so feel free to join me OR use this as your call to CREATE YOUR OWN TEAM!  If I can do it, SO CAN YOU!

This awful disease has stolen family members from me; my maternal grandmother, Florence and my paternal grandfather, Oscar.  This disease runs deep in my family and I want to be the one who is working to help those who work tirelessly to find a cure.  The Association also is here to help families and individuals who are living with – and fighting – Alzheimer’s Disease and its related dementias.   I want to live in a world where my daughter, who is currently 5, never has to know the horrible effects of this disease.  I don’t want your kids and grandchildren to know it either.

Please join me.  My Team… Your own team… just join the fight.  Please.

Visit, find the Brainerd Walk, and either find Team Tess Taylor or “create a team” and LET’S DO THIS TOGETHER!  Thank you!
