Because Alzheimer's sucks. For everyone involved and there is no cure. In 2012, the Volas family lost our beloved Poppop to this disease.
For the past few years, I have committed myself to taking action against Alzheimer's by working with BvB Raleigh... an organization pitting Blondes vs. Brunettes in an action-packed, amazing, only-comes-once-a-year flag footbal game. I was a defensive player, top fundraiser, executive committee member... and now that I've moved away from the Raleigh area, I can't help but continue to participate as a super fan. While we are opponents on the field, we are all in this together to spread Alzheimer's awareness and raise money. These women are amazing on and off the field and they have my heart.
This year, as always, I dedicate my fundraising to my Poppop, George Volas.
