Friends and Family,
The past year has captured the entire spectrum of change in my life – from wondrous and pure joy to utter and devastating frustration. From moment to moment change to slow and tedious shifts during the past twelve months, I can honestly say that 2017 has been a dynamic year for myself, my family, our nation and the entire planet. However the winds of change have yet to shift the conversation, elevator speech and broken record regarding Alzheimer’s Disease:
Alzheimer’s is the only leading cause of death (along with the designation as most expensive disease) in the United States that cannot be prevented, cured, or even slowed.
So again, at the end of 2017 (and perhaps in anticipation to changes in your 2018 tax return) I ask that you INVEST in fighting Alzheimer’s by supporting my 2018 Camel’s Hump Challenge Team (CHC) – Team Susie Backlund. May you write off this donation and in the process continue to support a world that will one day write off Alzheimer’s Disease!
Last year the Team Susie Backlund raised almost $3,200 – placing 3rd in fundraising. This year, I want to have another strong showing so I asking for donations that reflect the spirit of physical and metal challenge of the CHC. Consider one of the following donation amounts:
1. $1 for every mile skied in the CHC = $13 (The CHC is a 13 mile loop around Camel’s Hump Mountain)
2. 1 Penny for every foot of elevation gain in the CHC = $12 (1,200 feet of elevation gain)
3. 1 Dime for every minute enduring the CHC = $24 (8 hours in length = 240 minutes)

Thank you for your time, concern and investment in a WORLD WITHOUT Alzheimer’s Disease!
All the best!
The Backlund Family
