I was super honored to be asked to play for the Brunette Team this year in the Blondes vs. Brunettes football game!! I have danced in Central Georgia's Dancing With The Stars but now I'm hanging up my tap shoes and lacing up my cleats!! This event is so special because it is so fun and put on by such an amazing group of compassionate people for the best cause. The people behind this event were all touched in someway or another by Alzheimer's and are absolutely adament about finding the cure to save our loved ones and potentially us. For those like me playing, we are doing it to raise money for a cure because we have watched our own suffer through this terrible disease. On my mother's side, we have lost three of her four grandparents to Alzheimer's disease. When I was little I thought that it was awesome that my grandmother had so many dolls I could play with, but looking back I see that it was just a side effect of a sick, degenerative disease in action. I have watched the tole that this disease has taken on everyone in my family as they watch their heroes and mothers and fathers wither and pass due to this sickness. So, I am playing for Memaw, Pop Pop, and Grandmom.
I would love your donation, no matter how big or small it is. Every single cent is appreciated. Please keep the Blonde and Brunette teams in your thoughts and prayers as you consider donating and as we continue to fundraise!! Thank you so much!!
