My name is Shy Bolden and I am playing as a 5th year Veteran Outside/Middle Linebacker on Team Blondes in the Flag Football game BVB Houston! Alzheimer's has affected my family and friends, which is why I decided to play on this team. Through BVB Houston I am able to join the fight against Alzheimer's by raising awareness and money!
I would like to take this time to recognize the individuals that I will play for in the BVB game. My friends who are currently living with Alzheimer's--Cheryl Anne Williams (cousin), Stan Thaut (friend), Penny Yokubaitis (friend), Antrynette Walker-Hall (friend), & Robert Kirkland (friend). In loving memory, George Bourgeois (uncle), Emily Watkins (aunt), CJ Watkins (cousin), Walter Daniel (friend), Jerry & Nadine Downs (friends), Frances Wieszczak (friend), Rosa Roche (friend) & Gaynell B Williams (friend).
I am truly thankful for the Alzheimer's Association for starting BVB to allow me to play in honor of my family & friends.
Thank you for helping us tackle this disease - win or lose, our true goal is a world without Alzheimer's!
