Alzheimer's disease is the 6th leading cause of death in the U.S. My family knows that first hand as my Grandpa Lukacs suffered from the disease and I watched it take a toll not only on him, but on my entire family. My parents, aunts, and uncles all spent years as caregivers before Gramps passed away in 2014.
Every 65 seconds someone in the U.S. develops Alzheimer's disease. It’s time to take action by taking the field!
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.
If you're in the DC area, come out and watch the game in November! A donation of $25 secures you a ticket!
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.
