Move Toward an End to Alzheimer’s

As two of my colleagues just completed the 40-mile Avon’s Walk for Breast Cancer in New York last week, it’s easy to see why we at HIN have pink on the brain. But while the month of October is well-known as the time to wear pink and show your support for breast cancer, the Alzheimer’s Association is also doing something special this month to move toward an end to that disease.

The Alzheimer’s Association Memory Walk is the nation’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer care, support and research. The 2007 Memory Walks — admittedly no 40-mile walk — are two to three mile walks that take place on weekends during the fall in over 600 communities across the country.

So this fall, wear your pink breast cancer ribbon proudly, but add a second ribbon to your collection — the purple Alzheimer’s Awareness ribbon. You might look pretty in pink, but purple’s not so bad either.
