Phil and Tim Gutis-Weaver
is fundraising to honor:
all those facing Alzheimer's
Hello friends. As you know, I was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s about four years ago. Not surprisingly, the diagnosis was shattering but it left Tim and I determined to fight this disease with everything we have. Tim and I are working as co-chairs of the Longest Day campaign for the Delaware Valley Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association and I’m truly honored to be serving on the Chapter Board.
We realize that it seems somewhat odd to be thinking of anything else besides the COVID-19 pandemic and the unrest sweeping the country. Those of us who are suffering from Alzheimer’s and our loved ones, however, cannot for a moment forget about the challenges that Alzheimer’s and other dementias present.
Alzheimer’s is relentless. It pauses for nothing, not even a worldwide pandemic. That’s why the Alzheimer’s Association needs our support more than ever. The pandemic has taken a toll on the Association as so many events have had to be cancelled. In addition to providing care and support for people living with dementia and their families, the Association is the largest private founder of research to find desperately needed treatments or ultimately a cure for this disease.
For the Longest Day this year, I’ve set an ambitious goal of trying to virtually transit the length of New Jersey and back over the summer. I’ll be walking, running and biking to get my miles in, all in hopes of raising awareness about Alzheimer’s and other dementias.
Won’t you consider supporting the Alzheimer’s Association and me? Last year, you helped our Row to Remember raise more than $13,000. Can we do it again? A mighty challenge but one I’m certain we can reach. The need could not be greater.
