Norm (Scott) Lambert in Memory of My Dad Norman (Bud) Lambert
For the past 6 years I have been running the Chicago Marathon as part of the ALZ team in support of my Dad who had Alzheimer's. I chose not to run in 2019 for a variety of reasons (which turned out to be an ok thing due to some illness), but my Dad did end up passing away in July 2019 due to complications from what seemed like a minor concern initially. But it showed me how Alzheimer's can affect someone even more when their health is less than normal. This illness also impacts the mind and body's ability to recover from anesthesia, painkillers, etc. as well.
I am running in 2020 to support the Alzheimer's Association so we can someday find a cure for this disease and in memory of my Dad. Please help me in giving whatever you can to help find a cure from the research being done.
By participating in this event, I've committed to raising awareness and funds to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association®.
Currently, more than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer's disease and that number is expected to grow to as many as 16 million by 2050. Our future is at risk and we must come together to change the course of this disease.
Please support my efforts by making a donation. All funds raised benefit the Alzheimer's Association and its work to enhance care and support programs and advance research toward methods of treatment, prevention and, ultimately, a cure for Alzheimer's disease. Thank you for joining the fight against Alzheimer’s disease!
