is fundraising to honor:
his grandmother, Vilma Pérez
As you may know over the past two years I have taken up running as a serious sport. I enjoy the benefits of daily exercise, knowing I am reducing my risk for life-threatening diseases. This is especially important to me as Alzheimer’s disease has affected my family.
March 17, 2019 I will be running the NYC Half Marathon in honor of my grandmother, Vilma Escolar de Pérez, who was diagnosed with this devastating disease almost 3 years ago. I am excited to announce I have joined Alzheimer's Association The Longest Day Team and will be running to represent this amazing organization and the work they do to fund and fight for Alzheimer’s research and quality of care for those living with this disease.
Please help me reach my fundraising goal and fight against this destructive disease with a donation.
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. We must take action now or these numbers will continue to rise.
I am so excited to run this 13.1 mile tour of NYC! Please join me in standing up to the darkness of Alzheimer's and make a donation today to help all those facing the disease. Thank you for your generous support and encouragement!
