is fundraising to honor:
all those facing Alzheimer's
Hi friends and family,
****3/20 Fundraiser Update: The LA Marathon has been cancelled -- but that doesn't matter -- I'M NOW RUNNING A SOLO MARATHON ON MAY 30TH AND I STILL NEED YOUR HELP RAISING VITAL FUNDS IN THE FIGHT TO END ALZHEIMER'S!!****
Okay… so the LA marathon isn't technically cancelled, but it's been pushed to November. While it's possible to wait, there's still so much uncertainty on whether it will happen. So, instead, I'm taking matters into my own hands and will run my first ever Marathon SOLO on my home turf with the help of some loved ones to help pace and fuel me :)!
I hope you can help me reach my goal of $1,600 and support all those facing Alzheimer's and all other dementia. Any donation is greatly appreciated -- and is needed now more than ever. Like many other vulnerable communities, those with Alzheimer's and their families have been disproportionally impacted by COVID, and need your support!
Ps. For those interested in watching me struggle my way through my Marathon training program, you can follow my journey on Strava:
As many of you know last year I ran the LA Half Marathon as part of the Alzheimer's Association team. With your help, I raised over $1,000 to support the fight to end Alzheimer's!
This year families facing Alzheimer's need help more than ever, so I've decided to up the ante - not only am I running the FULL LA Marathon (now scheduled for May 2021), but I'm also upping my fundraising goal for the Alzheimer's Association to $1,600! I hope you can help me reach my goal and support all those facing Alzheimer's and other dementia!
Like last year, when I run, I'll be honoring my great-grandfather Ralph ("Gramps"). For those who don't know, Gramps was a Martha's Vineyard celebrity. He owned a wildly popular restaurant named "Ralphs Café" (known to the locals as "the Café") which was an island staple for over half a century which hosted countless A-list celebrites and employed thousands of locals while it's doors were open.
While I wish I could say these were my memories of this incredible man - I can't.
My only memories of Gramps were of him in a home for the memory impaired, barely remembering who I was, and having trouble remembering his loved ones, his life-story, and himself.
While I couldn't fully understand the magnitude of the disease at the time, I now know how destructive it can be, and how much it disrupts the lives of not only those suffering from the disease directly, but also the family, friends, and countless others.
Please help me stand up to the darkness of Alzheimer’s and make a donation today to help the Alzheimer's Association support all those facing the disease. Thankyou!!!!!
