--------------------

Tom is an outdoorsy guy and a teacher. But after instructing Years 4-5 for about four years, he takes the plunge, setting out to walk 1100 miles around the perimeter of Wales. What begins as a nature adventure quickly becomes a test of both physical and mental strength. Along the way, Tom comes to realize bits about himself he never knew existed and learns that the most important things in life aren't items you buy, but rather loved ones, kindness, and the world around you- right where you are. Hear how his Welsh Wander grew into something much bigger than himself and is making a difference for people with Alzheimer's.

Hear also from Earl who is 97 years young. He's a master mechanic, electrician, and a participant in a clinical trial on Alzheimer's. He remembers changing jobs at the start of WWII, riding horses in the mountains, and even hoisting an old teacher's Model-T onto the roof of a barn using ropes with his friends. In this touching interview, I talk with Earl, his daughter, and his grandson about life past, present, and why they care about helping those in the future.
