THE WALK TO END ALZHEIMER’S 2019
This is the time of year that we think again about raising funds for research for the cure for Alzheimer’s. This disease is an escalating threat. The death rates for several of the leading causes of death…stroke, cancer and heart disease are declining, while Alzheimer’s deaths have INCREASED 145% from 2000 to 2017.
Will you help us find a cure? This year I have partnered with Ed Sanders, a friend for many years, whose wife has been fighting Alzheimer’s since 2008. We are now Team Rutsey/Sanders.
Our team goal this year is to raise $10,000 for Alzheimer’s research. As Alzheimer’s disease progresses, brain tissue shrinks. As it shrinks, memory declines. When the disease spreads, language, judgement, behavior and even bodily functions decline until death, usually 8-10 years. How many of you know someone who has or had Alzheimer’s? Recent research found there may be a connection between heart disease and Alzheimer’s. Research is our ONLY hope. We cannot just hope for a cure. HELP US FIND ONE.
Whether it is $1, $10, $100, or more, every little bit helps. Please donate something…whatever you can.
