Kalin Konrad has been sponsoring her Backyard Carnival for Alzheimer's since she was in the 5th grade. Kalin's grandmother had Early Onset Alzheimer's disease and was diagnosed at the age of 58.
This year will be her 7th and final Backyard Carnival before starting her senior year at the Upper Moreland High School and preparing for college next year.
Kalin has been a voice to increase awareness of this devastating disease and educating her peers and young ones who have lost someone or have a loved one suffering with Alzheimer's disease.
Kalin and her family and friends organize this community event each year with carnival games, raffle baskets, refreshments and activities for children.
