Friends, Family and those who've been affected by Alzheimer’s,
Last year, so many loving and generous people helped our Vets raise $68,404 in support of their 33 Mile "Ruck" March to End Alzheimer's, helping them become the top fundraisers in the state of Michigan and 10th across the nation! Our Vets are back again and with an even larger goal for 2019. They've set their hearts on raising $70,000, and they're going to need your help to do it!
33 Miles is the distance separating Visiting Angels in Adrian from the Alzheimer's Association in Ann Arbor. To most people, 33 miles would be an impossible task to cover by foot while carrying 35 LBs on their backs; however, for our 2 Army Veterans who also own & operate Visiting Angels South Central Michigan, 33 miles represents hope, continued research and a dream to find the cure to this nasty disease. Tim Welbaum & Scott Doney will “Ruck” march to secure donations toward raising Alzheimer’s Awareness & to help families cope with this dreaded disease. Their goal is to raise $70,000, which seems extreme, but as was witnessed in 2018, its feasible if everyone finds a little kindness in their heart and is willing to make a small sacrifice to benefit the World and our future generations. If 7,000 people donated .30 cents for every mile our Vets marched, totaling only $10 each, our Vets would easily achieve their goal.
Tim and Scott know the task will be extremely difficult based off of their journey in 2018. They’re again prepared to shed blood and sweat as their feet blister and their backs are rubbed raw from their heavy ruck sacks. But the more they continue to learn about Alzheimer's, the more they realize that their sacrifice will be minuscule when compared to those who have to battle Alzheimer’s on a daily basis. Can you find it in your heart to spare .30 cents per mile marched, totaling $10 to join these Vets on their difficult journey to achieve their $70,000 goal toward ending Alzheimer's disease?
Thank you for joining the fight & helping our Vets Combat Alzheimer's!
