Hello friends and family - I will raise funds for the Alzheimer's Assocaiton this year to show my support for the cure for Alzheimer's, even though their event won't be a traditional walk. I'm hoping to have a family/friend walk in Stillwater.
My Dad passed away in 2002 and I still wish for one more hug/chat with him. Sadly each year we hear of family and friends stricken by this horrible disease. I hope for a cure/prevention soon. For those of you dealing with this disease, please reach out to the Alzheimer's Association for support and help.
By participating in the 2021 Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's™, I'm committed to raising awareness and funds for Alzheimer research, care and support.
The Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s® is the nation’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research. Together, we can end Alzheimer’s disease, the nation’s sixth-leading cause of death.
Our mission: To eliminate Alzheimer’s disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health.
Our vision: A world without Alzheimer’s disease (how wonderful would that be!!)
Where does the Money go?
The Alzheimer’s Association is the largest nonprofit voluntary health organization dedicated to accelerating the progress in prevention, cure and living with Alzheimer’s disease. The Alzheimer’s Association and each affiliated chapter share a single vision and mission and are incorporated as independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit entities. The funds raised through Walk to End Alzheimer’s benefit the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association. We strive to:
- Help families across the country by continuing to provide and enhance programs focusing on education and support.
- Advance critical research studies into methods of treatment, prevention and ultimately, a cure.
- Speak up for the needs and rights of those facing Alzheimer’s through our public policy initiatives.
A donor-supported organization, the Alzheimer's Association allocates its funds in an ethical and responsible manner that exceeds the rigorous standards of America’s most experienced charity evaluator, the Better Business Bureau Wise Giving Alliance. Learn more about our mission-related activities or contact your local chapter for information about programs and services in your community.
I need your support to do my part! Please make a donation to help the Alzheimer's Association advance research into prevention, treatments and 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 supporting me and my family, and remembering my Dad. Love, Sue
