NORWALK, Conn. -- Mike Davis, of Norwalk, will be among the volunteers for the Alzheimer's Association Connecticut Chapter who will take part in the Fairfield County Walk to End Alzheimer’s.
It will take place on Sunday from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Calf Pasture Beach in Norwalk.
Davis volunteers for the Alzheimer’s Association to honor the memory of his mother who was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s at the age of 71.
He has served on the walk event committee for six years and chaired the event for the last three years.
Davis has consistently ranked among the top fundraisers for the walk event, and in 2014, he raised $17,000 to benefit the cause. This year’s event coincides with the seventh anniversary of his mother’s death.
He carries the gene for Alzheimer’s but has shown no symptoms to date.
“I am incredibly passionate about the fundraising because I want a CURE, not drugs that slow the progress of the disease,” Davis said.
Registration for the annual event, sponsored by the Alzheimer’s Association Connecticut Chapter, continues to shatter records and currently boasts 183 teams and 800 walkers who have raised $135,776 to date.
