We're doing it again!! On Saturday, September 18, 2021 the extended Astrup family (and some other family and friends) will be walking together in the Twin Cities Walk to End Alzheimer's in honor/memory of our dad/grandpa/great grandpa (Leonard), who died of Alzheimer's and Lewy Body Dementia in 2014. The Walk to End Alzheimer's will be held "live" at Target Field this year.....YAY!! We are in this fight together and are passionate about doing what we can to END ALZHEIMER'S! Hard to believe, but this will be the third time we will be walking without our mom/grandma/great grandma/mother-in-law (Corrine) who died in March 2019. She was so passionate about ending Alzheimer's, helping others who live with it and changing the stigma of the disease. She loved this walk...even at the age of 94!! We will represent her in our fight! She SO enjoyed these Alzheimer's walks we've done for the past few years; it has become a very special tradition for our family. Any of you that have seen anyone struggle through this disease know what a devastating disease it is. We need to find a cure and find ways to help other families who have a family member living with dementia. We're all in this together!!
Our family received incredible support, advice and care through the Alzheimer's Association during the hardest parts of Leonard's journey with this disease. We want other families to receive the same help and support.
We are fundraising again this year. The Alzheimer's Association needs your support this year more than ever to keep delivering the vital services they offer. Without the live walks and live galas for 2 years, the support is critical. Let's try to do all we can to fight this disease that is affecting so many more people each year...and so many people being diagnosed early--even in their 50's! Please consider a gift...and give generously!
After our dad/grandpa/great grandpa died, our family created a non-profit to give back to communities in which our businesses have served. We focus on Healthcare (dementia being one), faith, family values, education and strengthening communities! This is the ASTRUP FAMILY FOUNDATION, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. We hope for this foundation to go on in to perpetuity. The Astrup Family Foundation Board of Directors have decided to--again this year--match ALL DONATIONS TO OUR WALK TO END ALZHEIMER'S (ALZHEIMER'S ASSOCIATION) DOLLAR FOR DOLLAR UP TO $30,000 THIS YEAR. That is twice what we matched last year!! We hope that encourages you to give generously, knowing that your gift will be DOUBLED by the foundation. Thank you for considering a gift and for joining us in the fight to END ALZHEIMER'S! LET'S DO THIS TOGETHER!!!!
Love from the Astrup's and the whole extended family
