I had the privilege of photographing the Walk To End Alzheimer's in Mobile this past Saturday. There was a large turnout for the event, which not only aimed to raise awareness to Alzheimer's, but also to raise money in an effort to find a cure. There were a lot of laughs throughout the event, in addition to tears shed for those lost to the disease, or currently either battling the disease or caring for someone that is dealing with this on a daily basis. Alzheimer's is not just a disease that targets those of advanced age. We heard stories of a man in his mid 50's and the struggles that he and his family face on a daily basis. Alzheimer's does not discriminate based on age, sex, race or nationality.
I am posting a few photos from Saturday's event. Photographing these type of events allows me to do my part in bringing awareness to the cause by donating my services to cover the event and sharing the story with you.
The event may be over, but the fundraising continues. You can donate at the following link:Donate to the Walk to End Alzheimer's
