Marni Blotner and Virna Sandler are co-captains of the #goforgold team this year supporting the Alzheimer's Association. They are walking in memory of their father, Howard Gold, who lost his battle with Alzheimer's in April of 2016 and walking in honor of their mother, Lila Gold, who is gracefully battling this terrible disease. The fundraising team is committed to making a difference in the lives of everyone affected by this disease. They are determined to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer's research, care and support. Alzheimer's disease is the nation's 6th leading cause of death. They are walking to help reclaim the future for millions. We are ALL walking to honor incredibly special people who mean the world to each one of us!!!
Walk to End Alzheimer's is taking place on Sunday, October 16, 2022 at Boulders Stadium, Pomona, NY. Love to see you there, so you can walk with us. If you cannot walk, please support this very important cause by donating to our team. Please help us reach our goal by making a tax-deductible donation. You can make a secure credit card donation online or download a form to mail in with a check. All donations benefit the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association!
Currently, more than 5.8 million Americans have Alzheimer's and that number is expected to grow to as many as 14 million by 2050. Our future is at risk unless we can find a way to change the course of this disease.
