Alzheimer's disease is the nation's sixth-leading cause of death, and impacts the lives not only the patient, but the family, loved ones, and caregivers, too. My family found that out first-hand, when my grandfather ("Grampy") was diagnosed. It's a disease that can escalate quickly, and before you know it, your world can be turned upside down.
That’s why I’m taking the field with the Alzheimer's Association RivALZ for the THIRD YEAR, a nationwide women’s flag-football league created to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association. My teammates and I are training and preparing for game day, but win or lose, our true goal is a world without Alzheimer’s.
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!
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.
