My grandfather suffers from Alzheimer's as well as two of great friends who each have a parent suffering from Alzheimer's. It is so sad to watch what they and their loved one have to go through daily. I want to do everything I can to help them and anyone suffering! When I moved to Jacksonville after participating in this in Phoenix and realized it had not been started here, I decided to take it upon myself to launch it here in Jacksonville, FL. My friends need as much help as they can get in the fight against ALZ!
Women are at the epicenter of the Alzheimer’s epidemic. Nearly two-thirds of the Americans living with Alzheimer’s – and more than 60 percent of Alzheimer’s and dementia caregivers – are women. 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.
Thank you for helping us tackle this disease – win or lose, our true goal is a world without Alzheimer’s!
Gwen- PURPLE TEAM CAPTAIN!
