Allison Toner's Fundraising Page
On August 21st, I, along with several of my cousins, will be running in the 50th anniversary of the Falmouth Road Race on Team End ALZ.
Ten years ago, we lost my Aunt Susan to Alzheimer's, and last year, my Aunt Carol passed as well. They were both strong, smart, independent women who were diagnosed young and taken far too soon. My Aunt Carol was my godmother and one of my favorite people on the planet. Alzheimer's attacked the very best parts of her - her quick wit, dry humor, and contagious energy.
Falmouth has been (and still is) an important place to our family - my dad and his siblings were raised there and members of our family have been running in this road race since the '80s. I'm honored to get to be a part of this family tradition in honor of my two aunts, as well as all of those affected by this devastating disease.
I would love your help in the fight against Alzheimer's! 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 your support :)
