Badgers broadcasters promoting Door County Alzheimer's Walk

With the Walk to End Alzheimer’s less than two weeks away, one Wisconsin sports figure is urging you to get to Door County to support and learn about the disease. Paul Braun, who was a longtime broadcaster for the University of Wisconsin Badgers hockey team for many years along with other sports, is an honorary co-chair of all 27 walks in Wisconsin along with fellow Badgers broadcaster Matt Lepay. 

 

Braun says since losing his wife to the disease in 2015, being involved with trying to end Alzheimer’s disease is his way of fighting back. 

 

 

He also says that the more awareness there is of the impact of the disease, the stronger the fight will be. He says there’s no shame if you don’t know much about the disease, as he didn’t until his wife was diagnosed. Braun suggests you get involved with the fight against Alzheimer’s even if you’re not personally affected, and a good place to start is researching the Alzheimer’s Association. The walk is on September 11th at Graham Park in Sturgeon Bay.
