Remembery Walk History


David Birtwell, Foley’s father, died in 2006 after battling Alzheimer’s disease for many years. That year, Foley’s son Patrick started the walk to honor his grandfather’s life. Patrick and his family continue to be the driving force behind this annual tribute. The word “remembery” was coined by Birtwell when he combined the words remember and memory while pointing to his head saying “this remembery doesn’t work very well anymore!”
