BENEFITING: Alzheimer's Association

EVENT: 48 Peaks

Deborah Griffin

THE STORY:

48 Peaks in 48 Hours. In one big collective effort, we’re climbing all of New Hampshire’s 4,000-footers in a single weekend. One team for each peak, with the Alzheimer's cause driving it all. .. and then there's me. I'm hiking the entire Appalachian Trail, it's called a thru hike when you hike the trail end to end. And I feel so strongly that this disease needs all the awareness and financial support possible that I'm walking 2,190 miles. And this will be easy compared the The Long Goodbye and the purple journey my parents experienced as victims of this disease.

 

Why? It's seems a normal question.. Because, when there's strength, there's hope. For those facing Alzheimer’s, 48 Peaks and my thru hike are reminders that we’re strong. That we can overcome struggles and conquer mountains. That 2,190 miles is doable in light of what an Alzheimer's patient faces throughout the course of the disease. That, no matter how hard things get, this disease can never break our spirits.

 

By climbing and hiking, we’re honoring the people we know who’ve been touched by this disease:

  • The spouses we care for
  • The parents who’ve been diagnosed
  • The grandparents who fight bravely
  • The caregivers who love unconditionally
  • And, all the loved ones we've lost

 

48 Peaks is a tribute to their strength, love, and commitment. It’s the grand gesture that this extraordinary community deserves.
