Family & Friends -
For the fifth and final year, I'm coaching in Denver's annual Blondes vs Brunettes flag football which supports the Alzheimer's Association. I lost my Grandpa Krieg to this disease in March of 2013, which fuels my motivation to help raise money to find treatments and a cure for this disease. In 2015, I joined their board of directors as our sponsorship chair. Our goal for 2018 is to exceed the $150k we raised for the Colorado Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association last year.
Alzheimer’s disease is the nation’s sixth-leading cause of death. An estimated 5.4 million Americans are living with the disease and nearly 15 million are acting as caregivers. It’s time to take action and change the course of this epidemic!
That’s why I’m taking the field with the Association Blondes vs. Brunettes®, a nationwide women’s flag-football league created to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association. My teammates and I are training and preparing for game day, but win or lose, our true goal is a world without Alzheimer’s.
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.
For every $25 in donations, you will get one ticket to the game on Saturday, June 23rd at 7PM at University of Denver Peter Barton Lacrosse Stadium.
Thank you in advance for your generosity – together, we can tackle Alzheimer’s disease.
