Alzheimer's is very important to my family.
Back in 2017, my dad began showing signs of Alzheimer's. My parents went from doctor to doctor and took test after test hoping for any diagnosis other than Alzheimer's.
A year later, they shared the final diagnosis with my siblings and I - early onset Alzheimer's. As a family, we kept this diagnosis close to home. We wanted to allow my dad to live life as "normally" as possible.
Unfortunately, Alzheimer's does not allow you to live "normally" for long. Alzheimer's has flipped my family's future upside down - as it has done for millions of other families. Five years into this journey, my dad remains upbeat and positive but Alzheimer's has stolen so much from him. Our community is more important than ever as we continue on this journey.
Last year, Hustle for a Cure raised $15,000 for the walk to end Alzheimer's with the support of local businesses and community generosity. A large portion of the $15,000 was raised at our "1st annual" corn hole tournament/raffle. This year our goal is $20,000 and we are asking for your help in getting there!
Join us for our corn hole/raffle fundraiser on Sunday, August 14 at Fat Pants Brewery in Eden Prairie. From noon until 6pm, $1 of every pint sold will go towards the walk to end Alzheimer's. (In addition to the fundraiser - it is my Dad's 64th birthday...lets shower him with love!)
The corn hole tournament will begin at noon. And thanks to so many generous local businesses, our raffle is not something to miss! $5 per ticket entry with all the proceeds going straight to the walk to end Alzheimer's!
However you are able to show support, we welcome it and appreciate it more than you know.
Thank you for helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
