EVENT DATE: Nov 01, 2015
On November 1, 2015 I am running the NYC marathon, 26.2 miles through the streets on NYC and all 5 boroughs. I am running to support the Alzheimer's association. This wonderful organization gives free support to many elderly people and their families. As a geriatrician I have personally seen many of my patients benefit from their wonderful services. The Alzheimer's association runs many support groups, education programs, safe return program and supports research. I hope you will be able to contribute to this very worthy cause. Thank you Cathy Devons
