My Personal Fundraising Page
My mom Janet was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease in 2019 at age 61. Fundraising for the Alzheimer's Association adds incredible meaning to every mile as I train for my ninth marathon—the 2023 TCS New York City Marathon on November 5.
As the largest nonprofit funder of Alzheimer's research, the Association is committed to advancing vital research toward methods of treatment, prevention and, ultimately, a cure. It's also the leading voice for Alzheimer's disease advocacy, fighting for critical Alzheimer’s research and care initiatives at the state and federal level. The Association also helps provide care and support for those affected by Alzheimer's and other dementias with support groups, a 24/7 helpline (800.272.3900), and more.
I know donating to nonprofits like this can feel like a drop in the bucket toward tackling a massive problem. But for my mom, for families like mine, for your grandparents and parents, and eventually for you and your kids and grandkids—every donation counts. Let's make it rain and build a tsunami of funding to wipe this thing out for good. Nobody should have to suffer like my mom, and I have to believe treatment methods and a cure are out there, waiting for a team of neuroscientists to hit the jackpot. I'm happy to throw money at that if it means other families won't have to walk this devastating path in the future. More life for everyone.
Currently, more than 6 million Americans have Alzheimer's disease and that number is expected to grow to nearly 13 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!
