Michael Bing Bing Taylor has been on a mission to make a difference for a few years now. Last year, he was able to raise around $150 to help find a cure for Alzheimer's, however, he was unable to participate in any of the walks due to unforeseen circumstances. This year, in 2016, Bing Bing is looking to raise a minimum of $1,000 to honor his mother and caregivers by joining the Grand Champion's club.
"It's always emotional for me at these walks," says Bing Bing. "When I remember what brings me here, all I have to hold on to are memories from my childhood." Bing Bing is currently inviting anyone who would like to help make a difference in the world to join him for the Walk to End Alzheimer's in LA Live on Saturday November 12th, 2016.
