Dear friends and family,
I'm participating again this year in the Walk to End Alzheimer's as part of the Arden Courts team. I'm committed to raising awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s research, care and support, and am working to motivate our team to exceed our fundraising from past years.
This year’s event won’t be a large in-person gathering — instead, this year, Walk to End Alzheimer’s is everywhere — on every sidewalk, track and trail. We invite you to walk in small teams of friends and family while others in your community do the same. Because we are all still walking and fundraising for the same thing: a world without Alzheimer’s and all other dementia.
My father Bob Stordeur lost his nearly 10 year battle with Alzheimer's Disease in May, 2017 and spent the last year and a half of his life living very contentedly at Arden Courts in Northbrook, IL. Alzheimer's Disease has affected nearly all of the males in my family, as well as my paternal great-grandmother, so I am VERY motivated to find a cure.
Currently, more than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer's and that number is expected to grow to as many as 16 million by 2050. Our future is at risk unless we can find a way to change the course of this disease.
I need your support to do my part! Please make a donation to help the Alzheimer's Association advance research into methods of treatment, prevention and, ultimately, a cure for Alzheimer's.
Many of you have supported me in previous years and I really appreciate it.
Thank you in advance for your generosity. The end of Alzheimer's disease starts with you.
Thank you for helping us advance Alzheimer's support, care and research!
