is fundraising to honor:
Her grandfather Paul Federbush
Right before the new year I had the opportunity to visit my grandfather in Florida. I have always known my grandfather to be a wealth of knowledge and an extremely accomplished man. While he is and will always be those things, his memory is slowly starting to fade. He no longer reads five newspapers a day, vigorously discusses politics, or goes to lectures regularly.
Watching the progression over these three years has not been easy. Being one out of his two granddaughters has always carried a special bond between us. This past visit, his memory of me was minimal and that’s when it started to sync in for me.
Today, an estimated 50 million people worldwide are living with Alzheimer’s or other dementias, including more than 5 million Americans. In the United States alone, 16 million friends and family members are providing their care. We must take actions now, or these numbers will continue to rise. That is why I have decided to run the half marathon on behalf of the Alzheimer’s Association.
I have always loved running. Running brings me a sense of calm in good times and bad. By running, I would like to bring a sense of calm to those who are struggling with the direct or indirect affects of Alzheimer’s. My hope is to contribute in advancing the care, support, and research efforts committed to fighting Alzheimer’s disease.
I will be turning 25 shortly before the marathon, as a gift I would like to give as much as I can to the cause with your help. Stand up to the darkness of Alzheimer’s and make a donation today to help the Alzheimer’s Association support all those facing the disease. Thank you!
