My Personal Fundraising Page
I am choosing to run the Chicago Marathon for the Alzheimer's Association for many special reasons. This heart-wrenching disease has affected me personally twice. First, being my grandma Ardie, who passed away from the disease 12 years ago. Currently, my grandma Joanie is battling Alzheimer's as well. As a family, it has been an emotional roller coaster. I am running to raise awareness to others and to raise money in hopes to find a cure.
By participating in this event, I've committed to raising awareness and funds to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association®.
Currently, more than 6 million Americans have Alzheimer's disease and that number is expected to grow to nearly 13 million by 2050. Our future is at risk and we must come together to change the course of this disease.
Please support my efforts by making a donation. All funds raised benefit the Alzheimer's Association and its work to enhance care and support programs and advance research toward methods of treatment, prevention and, ultimately, a cure for Alzheimer's disease. Thank you for joining the fight against Alzheimer’s disease!
