My fundraising effort for the Alzheimer’s Association has a special significance this year. My wife of 52 years, Kris, died January 7, 2021, at Grand View Alzheimer’s Special Care Center in Peoria. She had been a resident there since late August 2018, after I could no longer provide adequate care for her in our home. Kris’s 10-year struggle with Alzheimer’s disease is now over and she is at peace. She was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother. The photo on this page is from our 2011 trip to China. Kris had just crossed over the bridge in the background and was being congratulated by our guide.
Countless others still struggle with this devastating disease that robs people of their quality of life in their later years. They need our help and the Alzheimer’s Association needs our financial support. Held annually in more than 600 communities nationwide, the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s is the world’s largest fundraiser for Alzheimer’s care, support and research.
Fundraising for the Alzheimer’s Association is a family affair and has become our passion. My daughter, Gretchen Moon, and her husband, Joe, will direct their donations to my site. My son, Geoff, and his wife, Allison, will maintain their own site. Last year my family collectively received 174 donations totaling $24,379. We were among the 50 largest fundraisers in the nation. We want to do even better this year, and with your help we will. We are again partnering in our fundraising efforts with the Grandview Guys & Gals team.
Please consider a generous donation to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association. Please help the Alzheimer’s Association find a cure. You will feel good about this. Thank you.
Thank you for helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
