This year I've joined forces with the men and women of Blondes vs. Brunettes-Raleigh to help raise both $$$ and awareness for Alzheimer’s! Having witnessed the effects of this horrible disease first hand through the loss of both my paternal grandparents, this is a cause very close to my heart.
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!
Although I won't be playing in the game this year, please support my team (#GOTEAMBRUNETTE) and the 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.
