Wonderful Opportunity to Volunteer

For those of you that know me, you know that volunteering is an important part of my life. As home schoolers we have even grown to coordinate a local group of teens that plan and participate in volunteer activities in and around our community. Volunteering gives you a sense of pride and purpose that can be achieved through no other means.

What about you? Have you thought about volunteering your time for a worthy cause? Are you looking for an opportunity to make a difference? Has someone you know and love been touched by Alzheimer's? I just learned about this opportunity to make a difference. Why not learn more about how you can participate in the Alzheimer's Memory Walk that is being held this fall?

Every 71 seconds someone is diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. I was shocked to learn that it is the 6th leading cause of death in the United States. By joining Memory Walk and more than 200,000 individuals you can contribute to making the dream of creating a world without Alzheimer's disease a reality.

What better opportunity to model the importance of community involvement and the value of our elderly society members. We are all connected, and taking the time to think of others is a great example for our youth. With today's individual mindset it is beneficial to everyone for us to step outside ourselves and put the needs of others at the center of our attention.

There are so many ways to get involved. You need not actually participate in the walk to contribute to this worth while organization. Please visit the link above to learn how you can join in the effort, contribute your time and talent, and make a difference in the lives of those afflicted by Alzheimer's disease, their families, and even yours. Who knows, you may create a valued family tradition of service and community involvement. Don't be shy! Visit the above link to get started today.
