The end of Alzheimer's disease starts here.

I’m going the distance with the Alzheimer’s Association ALZ Stars®, a program to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Association. I am running in honor of my mom, who was diagnosed in 2011. My kids don’t remember having grandma being “not sick”, but I remember. She baked cookies, played the piano, sang like an angel, and loved us. My dad now has a full time job to care for her. This is not how they envisioned retirement. For her, and all those fading away with this disease, I will run this race and do my small part to raise money and awareness.

Currently, more than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer's and that number is expected to grow to as many as 16 million by 2050. Our future is at risk unless we can find a way to change the course of this disease.

I need your support to do my part! Please make a donation to help the Alzheimer's Association advance research to discover methods of prevention, treatment and ultimately, a cure for Alzheimer’s. For the millions already affected by the disease, the Association offers care, education, support and resources in communities nationwide.

Thank you in advance for your generosity – together, we can outrace Alzheimer’s disease.

I prefer to mail my donation.
