As many of you know, Alzheimer’s disease is something close to my family. Sadly, we lost my grandmother who passed from a long battle against Alzheimer’s in September of 2015.
I found my love for backpacking in college and have been hiking all over the United States and New Zealand for the past few years. Now as I gear up to hike the Continental Divide trail, I wanted to make all of this walking more meaningful, to not only me, but to those around me.
As a tribute our grandfather, my brother Aaron and I will be running the Jungfrau Marathon in the Alps on September 12, 2015. We dedicate our run to our grandfather and the countless others who we cherish as healthy today but may one day be diagnosed with this disease.
