We're doing it again! The Walk to End Alzheimer's will be held "live" at Target Field this year....YAY!! Most of my family/extended family members (and hopefully a few friends) and I will walk together in the Twin Cities in honor/memory of our dad/grandpa/great grandpa (Leonard) who died of Alzheimer's and Lewy Body Dementia in 2014. 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 my mom, 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, too!! She SO enjoyed these Alzheimer's walks we've done for the past several years; it has become a very special tradition for our family. Any of you that have seen anyone struggle through this 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 do this walk to honor our dad/grandpa/great grandpa and so many others we know who are on this journey! We're all in this together!
Our family received incredible support, advice and care through the Alzheimer’s Association during the hardest parts of my dad’s journey with this disease.
We are fundraising again this year. The Alzheimer's Association needs your support this year more than every! Will you help?!! 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! Without having our live gala and our live walks, the association needs your/our support more than ever to keep delivering the vital services they offer. Please consider and gift...and give generously!
After my dad died, our family created a non-profit to give back to the 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, and we are a 501c3 of which I am the current President. We hope for this foundation to go on in to perpetuity. The Astrup Family Foundation Board of Directors has 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....LET'S DO THIS!!! Will you please consider giving generously…or giving any gift at all? Anything you give will be DOUBLED by the foundation! Thank you for considering a gift and for helping in the fight to END ALZHEIMER'S!
With love and gratitude, Susan (Astrup) Lundquist
