HOF Memory Walkers Make a Difference!


by: Susie Petersen, HOF Program Director




  Wow, the House of Friends Memory Walk 2006 team was out in full force on Saturday, September 30th! Thirty-three walkers arose early and broke a sweat walking 3 miles through downtown Austin to support the Alzheimer’s Assoc. annual fundraiser to support programs and research for Alzheimer’s and related diseases.  Our walking team represented 66 donors who contributed $1965.00! This is fantastic!!! Our largest fundraisers were Jim and Vee Schlosser! We also recognize fundraisers Brandy Shinski, Kim Natwig, Shirley Leydecker, Herby Beard, and Rhonda Allen. 

Not letting a gathering go by without food and fellowship, our group had a great time eating breakfast at Hoover’s Cooking on Manor Road after the Walk. Yum, yum—migas and gingerbread pancakes were a few of the delicious menu items!

Memory Walk - 2005

    Did you hear the Celebrating?
    Did you see the smiling faces?
    Did you see THE TROPHY? 

Yes, the House of Friends participation in the annual Alzheimer’s Memory Walk ‘05 not only brought in $685 in donations ($135 over our goal) - but our team of 25 won a trophy for the largest individual team!  We were awarded a three foot high gold and purple trophy with a purple gym shoe on top!  It was a wonderful surprise to all.  

After the 3 mile walk, we enjoyed breakfast together at Katz’s Deli.  We even got a thank you for all we did from Mr. Katz himself!  It was a memorable day. 

My heartfelt thanks go to all of you that donated and participated in the Memory Walk.  I could not have done it all without you.  You are very special, and I know that the millions of those who are affected with this horrible disease appreciate your time and efforts.

I hope to have all of you back, and many more, participate next year.  Thanks once again to all!
