Why We Walk: Supporting good works is a core component of Match Me Partners. As a nationwide real estate agent referral firm, we seek to form partnerships that generate donations to charities that work to improve the health, safety, education, and well-being of individuals and families.
While this mission includes charities pursuing cures for any and all diseases, the fight against Alzheimers is a very personal one for Match Me Partners. Audrey Darby, the Founder and CEO of Match Me Partners, is the daughter, granddaughter, and great-granddaughter of women who fell victim to the disease. Her mother, Dorothy Cunningham, has suffered from advanced Alzheimers for several years. Once lively, energetic, and engaged, Dorothy now no longer speaks or recognizes family members. An MBA/CPA who had a sharp mind for business and finance, Dorothy inspired her daughter to create her own company. Yet in one of Alzheimers many cruelties Audrey is deprived of the simple joy of sharing all of the twists and triumphs of her venture with her mom. As many families know, this type of long goodbye is heartbreaking.
At Match Me Partners, we walk for all the daughters, sons, nephews, nieces, husbands, wives, sisters, brothers and families who see their loved ones fade from them in plain sight. We Walk To End Alzheimers!
