Shirley's Walk Donation Page
Dear Family and Friends:
The year has just flown by. Chester's Cheetahs will be participating in the 2017 Walk to End Alzheimer's again this year in memory of our Dad, Grandfather, Great-Grandfather, Uncle and Friend, Chester Cieslak. Last year Chester's Cheetahs raised $6,395, our highest since we started walking in 1999, making our total raised thus far to just over $75,000. Thank you!!!
These are the facts about the Alzheimer's crisis - More than 5 million Americans are living with Alzheimer's. By 2050 this number could rise as high as 16 million. Alzheimer's disease is the 6th leading cause of death in the United States. It kills more than breast and prostate cancers combined. Every 66 seconds someone in the United
States develops the disease. One in three seniors dies with Alzheimer's or another dementia. More than 15 million American's provide unpaid care for people with Alzheimer's or other dementia. In 2016, these caregivers provided an estimated 18.2 billion hours of care valued at over $230 billion. In 2017, Alzheimer's and other dementia will cost the nation $259 billion. By 2050, these costs could rise as high as $1.1 trillion. The Alzheimer's Association is leading the fight against Alzheimer's, but they need your help.
Chester's Cheetahs would again like to set our goal at $4,000. I have set my personal goal at $2,000. I want to do my part to fight this fatal disease – but I can't do it without your continued help. I hope you will consider donating again this year or making a first-time pledge to help find a cure for Alzheimer's. I will be happy to accept any contribution ~ large or small. Contributions are tax deductible. I would like to receive pledges by Wednesday, September 13. Checks should be made payable to "Alzheimer's Association".
