Our Team Story
Our fundraising efforts are in honor and support of Sterling’s founder, (Leonard Astrup), family, and friends. Alzheimer’s disease—and other dementias—affects nearly every family across the nation. We believe in the Alzheimer’s Association’s commitment to accelerating the discovery of treatment methods, prevention, and ultimately, a cure.
How You Can Donate
Like the past several years, we will be asking patients and customers if they would like to donate at the registers and on this website.
How You Can Help Spread the Word
After you donate, we ask that you help us spread the word on Facebook. Post your reason for joining the effort to end Alzheimer's and include the hashtag #JoinSterlingInTheFight. For example, “I donated in memory of my mom #JoinSterlingInTheFight” or “I donated to help the loving caregivers #JoinSterlingInTheFight.”
We’ve also created a Facebook profile frame to help highlight your passion to end Alzheimer’s. You can find the frame by searching for "Sterling Pharmacy" under the profile frame options or by visiting this link.
How Your Donation’s Impact Is Doubled
Once again, the Astrup Family Foundation has agreed to match every donation up to $25,000! All you need to do is donate at a local Sterling location or on this website, and your donation amount will automatically be doubled by the Foundation.
Where the Donations Go
Every dollar raised and every dollar matched by the Astrup Family Foundation will go directly to the Alzheimer’s Association’s Minnesota-North Dakota Chapter. From face-to-face support to online education programs and promising worldwide research initiatives, your donations make a difference in the lives of those impacted by Alzheimer’s disease.
The Power of a Donation
The dollars you raise fuel the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.
