Ashley Frankenfeld – Alzheimer’s Association

The last place I volunteered was with the Alzheimer’s Association in Denver, Colorado. Every year, my whole entire family comes out to Denver and we all participate in the Walk to End Alzheimer’s. Being surrounded by tons of family is a wonderful time to give back, remember our loved ones, and participate in a cause that is very near to our hearts.

In the summer of 2018, I lost both of my grandparents to Alzheimer’s. In a family with over 20 grandkids and great grandkids, it was a very difficult event to experience.

After 2018, we all made it a priority to contribute to the Alzheimer’s Association in ANY way possible. Every year, I look forward to September, because that is the time that we get to fight for an end to ALZ altogether.

Last year, Walk to End Alzheimer’s raised more than $67 million.
