My family and I watched my great-grandmother fall victim, and ultimately succumb, to this disease. Having to watch one of the strongest women you know slowly lose themselves and forget the people they love is the worst. I am playing in this game for my MawMaw Sugarbear. In hopes that no one else in my family, or anyone else's family, falls victim to this disease.
Please support my participation in RivALZ, a flag football game and fundraising competition to help end Alzheimer’s. We may be opponents on the field, but when it comes to Alzheimer’s, we’re all on the same side. 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.
