Why do I BVB? Because there are no survivor ribbons for Alzheimer's. It is one of the top 10 killers in the US, with no cure! My family has been personally affected by this disease, and my hope is that by us raising money and awareness, other people's families will be spared. When I started my journey with BVB in 2013, my dad was living on his own and very much self sufficient. In 2015 he was diagnosed with a minor cognitive impairment, and in 2016 we had to move him into a memory care unit for Alzheimer's patients. He'll never see me play again, but that doesn't mean I'm giving up the fight!
We are so excited for the 2017 season, and hope you can help us achieve our fundraising goal of $130,000 by game day! I look forward to seeing you at our fundraising events, as well as at Game Day on June 3. A minimum $20 Donation gets you a ticket to the game!
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.
Thank you in advance for your generosity – together, we can tackle Alzheimer’s disease.
