Our First Blog Post for Our Lewy Body Fundraising Walk on the Camino de Santiago

I have so much I want to blog about relating to Lewy Body Dementia and our upcoming fundraising walk in April. It’s hard to know where to start. The blog is two parts–information about Lewy Body Dementia and information about our fundraising walk on the Camino de Santiago in northern Spain.

I will be posting once a week leading up to April and then as often as possible as we do our walk.

About Our Walk on the Camino de Santiago

The Camino de Santiago, also known as the Way of Saint James, is an ancient Christian pilgrim walk in Europe that started during the Middle Ages. It has many paths but one of the most popular is the Camino Frances, which is the nearly 500-mile path we will take from southern France across northern Spain to the city of Santiago de Compostela.

Along the walk, we will stay in refugios, which are inexpensive dorms where everyone eats together and sleeps in a communal room. We will be spending our own funds for the entire walk and using American Airlines miles we have collected to fly for free.

Please Contribute to the Lewy Body Dementia Organization Through Our Walk

As we walk, we will be handing out information and talking to fellow walkers about Lewy Body Dementia to help create awareness. Most people with the disease are misdiagnosed and not medicated appropriately to slow the progression. All donations go directly to the Lewy Body Dementia Organization for education and research. You can DONATE HERE–Crowdrise–Walk with Lewy!
