As most of you know my father was diagnosed a few years ago with Alzheimer's disease. Unfortunately this disease has taken him away from his family before his time. He is not able to enjoy all the normal family moments with us, he will never know his great-grandchildren (who I know he would corrupt somehow), be my biggest fan anymore or cheer on the Calgary Bears. That is heartbreaking for us because he is still here and we can still see him but he slips away a bit more each day.
This year I have created the Everson dream team and Dan, Jay and Brad have agreed to do the 5KM run to raise money for Alzheimer's research and support for those affected by it and those providing care for their loved ones. As most of you know running is not my favorite thing to do but it is so much easier when you are running for a great cause. I feel honoured that I get to do this and push myself all for dad, he would do nothing less for me.
I know these past few years have been hard on everyone and I appreciate any support you can provide. Please feel free to share this everywhere.
