The Dork O’Rourke’s are raising money and awareness for Alzheimer’s and the long-standing fight for prevention education, improved treatments & therapies, and ultimately a cure.
We do this as a family rallied behind and beside our patriarch, Tim “Sarge” O’Rourke, who was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s a few years ago. Our Sarge hails from Baltimore, Maryland where he was a proud Longshoreman for the Port of Baltimore and a long-term member of the I.L.A. ( International Longshoreman Association). Sarge is a father of 5 with a few honorary in-laws, and a Pop-Pop to 6 grandchildren ( more to come in the future!!). All along the way has been the glue and his touchstone, his wife Robyn. If saints and angels were real and not just sports teams, she’d surely be one ( she probably secretly is).
Dementia and Alzheimer’s are nothing short of cruel and torture. We understand that we will never have a cure for our father, but we continue to raise awareness with the belief that one day, this disease will be preventable and/or cured. And that our family and our father will have had a role, be it ever so small, in the miracle.
Please donate in honor of our father, and every loved one who has been affected by Alzheimer’s.
