Good people doing good things. I like that.
Today I’m going to share a story about my friend Ann Glascock-Ryan, She has her “why” nailed down! (Nail Your Why)
As a child Ann moved around the paths, hills, and roads of middle Marin on foot, her blue bike with the banana seat, or by horseback. Now she gets to hike many of these same trails with her adult kids and walk the bike paths with her dad who was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s two years ago. Despite his diagnosis he is doing well and living semi-independently.
On June 21st, Ann will participate in The Longest Day to honor her father Bill and to raise money for Alzheimer’s disease.* It is a roughly 20-mile walk/hike starting at the Marin Civic Center while crisscrossing the routes that hold the memories of her childhood.
Alzheimer’s is a devastating disease that affects every family member. Ann is hoping to bring awareness and also raise money for the Alzheimer’s Association. If you would like to support Ann’s efforts you can plan to walk with Ann, make a donation to her fundraising efforts, or both!

Now go run!
*Alzheimer’s is a type of dementia that causes problems with memory, thinking and behavior. Symptoms usually develop slowly and get worse over time, becoming severe enough to interfere with daily tasks.
