On Sunday, we walked in honor of those who have left us, in support of the advocates who fight to raise money and awareness, and especially the caregivers who selflessly give up their own lives, for the ones they love.  In many ways, the day mirrors the Alzheimer’s journey: there is the frustration of knowing there isn’t a cure or enough funding and that we must do more – a great deal more. There is the inspiration from a determined crowd who advocate all year round.  And there are the humorous conversations and light-hearted moments that pepper the morning.  We walked with Lisa and Gary Bricker, from Alz Across America.  Gary has early onset and Lisa is his primary caregiver.  They are exceptional people and have become relentless advocates for the Carpe Kilimanjaro project.  They shared their story with us earlier this year and you can watch it here.

Susan Galeas, CEO of the Alzheimer’s Association Southland Chapter, was kind enough to give our film a shout out, when she mentioned the other Alzheimer’s films due out this year.  Most notably, “I’ll Be Me”, the Glen Campbell documentary and the scripted feature, “Still Alice”, starring Julianne Moore and Alec Baldwin.  We got a chance to meet Trevor Albert and James Keach, at the “I’ll Be Me” screening a few weeks ago here in LA and invited them to check out our film, when we start screening.  Great guys and fantastic filmmakers.
