Kitacon was good.
I don't know what else to say on that. XD
Pictures will come when I get them ^_^
-------LEGS, YOU WILL FEEL THE BURN!-------
So, Jenn and I will be joining Laura in her Ten Mile "Big Walk" for the Alzheimer's charity ARUK.
Named after Dr Alois Alzheimer, who observed the disease in 1901, Alzheimer's disease affects about 500,000 people in the UK, and an estimated 35 million worldwide.
Typical symptoms of early Alzheimer's include:
- Regularly forgetting recent events, names and faces.
- Regularly misplacing items or putting them in odd places.
- Confusion about the time of day.
- Disorientation, especially away from your normal surroundings.
- Getting lost.
- Problems finding the right words.
- Reduced judgement, for example, being unaware of danger.
- Mood or behaviour problems such as apathy, irritability, or losing confidence.
Many older people suffer from this disease, one of them being Laura's grandfather, who she is very close to. It is with him in mind that the three of us are undertaking the Big Walk. Alzheimer's is something that any of us could potentially suffer from in the future, and it is heartbreaking to see someone close to you go through it. While ARUK is a charity within the United Kingdom, their work and research is relevant on a global scale, so it is not just the UK that you would be assisting.

I know lots of you have been very generous recently as it is, donating to our Gaming Marathon, but this is just as worthy a cause, and I sincerely hope people will have the means to support us once again. Thank you ^_^
