Hello! My name is Noah Edmonson and I am a freshman at WKU majoring in Organizational Leadership and minoring in Business Administration. Bowling Green, Kentucky is where I call home.
The reason why I want to go on this journey is because this journey allows us, as a group, the opportunity to make a small difference. As college students, we don't have the opportunity to make a large monetary donation to support the research for a cure. What we can do, however, is spend a few short months raising awareness for this terrible disease. The more statistics I have heard about the stagnation of research for this disease and the stories of the families affected by Alzheimer's, the more I feel compelled to go on this trip. It's one thing to identify a problem, but to actually do something requires a passion for a cure to be found. Memories of the past help to shape who we are, and that is why I want to go on this fight for memories!
