When I was a pre-teen, Grammy was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. She forgot who I was, despite living less than a mile away and seeing her multiple times a week. As a child, having your grandmother forget you is an indescribable heartache. On the flip side, I can't imagine the pain and confusion she suffered on a daily basis. I play for her and to raise money to help end this horrific disease.
Nearly two-thirds of the Americans living with Alzheimer’s are women. It’s time to take action by taking the field! Please support my participation in RivALZ, a flag football game and fundraising competition to help end Alzheimer’s. This is a disease that must be defeated and we need your help to do it. Your donation will advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association.
Thank you for helping us tackle this disease – win or lose, our true goal is a world without Alzheimer’s!
To eliminate Alzheimer's disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health.
