EVENT DATE: Nov 01, 2015
Dear Friends and Family,
On November 1, 2015 I will be running the TCS New York City Marathon to raise awareness and funds for the Alzheimer’s Association in memory of my grandmother Elaine Alper, who passed away from Dementia in 2004, and in honor of my brother-inlaw David's mother, Barbara Feiner. Barbara was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease a few years ago at the the age of 67 and her condition has deteriorated rapidly.
Over this time, David's family has gone through the difficult process of watching his mother lose her faculties—from struggling with her short-term memory and everyday tasks, straining to recognize friends and family, to losing her ability to speak. I’m running this race to celebrate her, and to help find a cure for this disease that has devastated so many families.
I hope that you will join me in honoring Barbara and her family's struggle and to help advance research that will hopefully one day lead to a cure.
Thank you so much for your support!
