Hello family and friends,
I lost my mom and dad to Alzheimer's a number of years ago. Now I have another family member that has been diagnosed in the early stages of Alzheimer's. I have a renewed fire in my gut to defeat ALZ as fast as we can. Losing is not an option.
Team Skellenger took a step back last year because of COVID 19. Now more than ever I need the help of everyone as I'm unable to do it by myself. This is in honor of my mom and dad who fought the good fight and lost to Alzheimer's. I don't want to loose any more family members to ALZ! I want my family member to be one of the first with a white flower. The white flower represents a person who has defeated Alzheimer's. One has yet to have been given.
I'm walking to help reclaim the future for millions. By participating in the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's®, I'm committed to raising awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s research, care and support.
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 consider a donation to help the Alzheimer's Association advance research into methods of treatment, prevention and, ultimately, a cure for Alzheimer's. For the millions already affected by the disease, the Association offers care, education, support and resources in communities nationwide.
Thank you for joining the movement! The end of Alzheimer's disease starts with you.
Thank you for helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
