is fundraising to honor:
Those impacted by Alzheimer's
I am running the New York Half Marathon (my first half - first race longer than a 5K for that matter!) on behalf of all those who have, or know someone who has suffered from Alzheimer's. I fall into the latter category, and have seen how horrible this disease can be for not only those diagnosed, but for their friends and family as well.
The Alzheimer's Association's mission is to eliminate the disease through 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. Today, an estimated 50 million people worldwide are living with Alzheimer's or other dementias, including more than 5 million Americans. In the United States alone, 16 million friends and family members are providing their care. I'm hoping that through the funding and awareness we raise together, we can help make a difference.
Please consider making a donation today to help the Alzheimer's Association support all those facing the disease. Thank you very much for your support!
