  • Five Million Steps for Alzheimer’s | Alzheimer Society of Ottawa and Renfrew County
    complete hike in one season fewer than 20 actually complete it So what would induce two youngish senior women to hike the Appalachian Trail this year Before they started their hike this is what Anda and Arlene shared with the Alzheimer Society My love of mountains began when I attended a Girl Guide mountaineering camp in Alberta when I was 15 says Anda Bruinsma My reward is the immense personal satisfaction I get from achieving a difficult goal I ll be 58 a month after we start the hike What an amazing adventure this will be I m happiest when playing outside says Arlene Gregoire I ve decided to thru hike the Appalachian Trail as a way of disengaging from the fast paced and demanding career I had with the City of Ottawa Getting back to nature and slowing down will help me transition between work and my next phase of life retirement Both women are seasoned hikers with many international rugged hikes in their background But both are motivated by another important goal to raise much needed funds for the Alzheimer Society Our hike will be really tough and painful at times So we ll take that on if others will help to pay by donating to a really important cause laughs Anda My dear mother suffered from dementia before she died and this hike will honour her memory as we raise funds for research and to support people in our community who are living with dementia That s why we re calling it A Walk to Remember because it will be just that in many ways Anda and Arlene s determination to complete the Appalachian Trail is matched by their determination to raise lots of money for the Alzheimer Society Putting their playful sense of humour to work
