“Hike to Remember”

I’m proud to announce our upcoming “Hike to Remember” for all those that have lost someone to the ravaging effects of Alzheimer’s Disease. My twin brother Jamie and myself are set to hike the 51 miles of the Monadnock-Sunapee Greenway starting on our birthday Saturday October 9th.

Our Dad passed away four weeks ago at the age of 64. He had dedicated his last 4-5 years to numerous studies at Boston University’s Alzheimer’s Research Center to help any way he could so millions of other baby boomers won’t have to face this disease.

If there is not a cure within 5 years the number of people affected will rise from 5 million to 15 million. This hike is not only in memory of our Dad but to create further awareness of the disease and raise money for the Skip Curtis Fund at BU’s Alzheimer’s Research Center. Please be sure to note the Skip Curtis Fund when making your donation. Any donation amount is appreciated in our quest for Hope.

I will be blogging along the way and hope you will follow us along our journey. Our friend Kristen will also be hiking with us and blogging for the SELF magazine fitness blog. We welcome anyone that would like to join us at any point during our hike.

We will also be giving a donation to the Monadnock-Sunapee Greenway Trail Club as a thank you for all their hard work in maintaining this little slice of paradise.

Thank you to the generous outdoor retailers that have provided support of our “Hike to Rememeber”!

    Hi Rob and Jamie,

    I’m so sorry to hear about the loss of your Dad. Skip was a great guy and a great father.

    Your upcoming hike is both brave and noble, and I look forward to reading about your adventures along the way.

    Love to you both, your Mom, Laura, and family.
