Why are we doing this?
Trails for Dale
was formed to celebrate and honor our dad, Dale Putnam, who was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer's disease at age 57. There is no cure for him, or anyone fighting Alzheimer's today.
Dale is an active participant in Alzheimer's research, in hopes that one day there will be a cure for someone else. We love him very much and are so proud.
While we won't see a cure in his lifetime, we're going to make damn sure we see one in ours.
It is now estimated that 10 million people are diagnosed daily. We simply don’t have the infrastructure to take care of that many people, so we have to find a cure. Trails for Dale is about everyone who's been affected by Alzheimer's or other dementias. (Click here to tell us about the person you're participating for.)
We hope you'll join us.
