Love Knitting and Running? Focus on Alzheimer's!
Mick & Beth Luehrman
This is my charity donation page in connection with my Guinness World Record attempt to knit the "longest scarf knit whilst running a marathon". I'll be running in the Kansas City Marathon on Oct. 19th 2013. Running and knitting is a strange thing to do. I am hoping that the attention I receive will be directed towards doing some good. I want people to focus on Alzheimer's and show their support for people affected by this disease by making even a modest donation. A lot of little donations can make a difference, just like doing a marathon: one step - and stitch - at a time.
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.
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.
