BENEFITING: Brigham and Women's Hospital
EVENT: 2016 Maine Marathon
EVENT DATE: Oct 02, 2016
On Sunday, October 2, I will be part of a relay team running the Maine Marathon to support the Josephine and John Marr Alzheimer’s Research Fund at Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH). This fund supports a visionary Alzheimer’s research initiative aimed at ultimately preventing the disease. While we have the same last name, this Marr family is not related to Scott!
Today, more than five million Americans are courageously fighting Alzheimer’s disease. World-renowned researchers at BWH are focused on finding a way to stop Alzheimer’s disease altogether. Backed by more than 30 years of research, BWH leaders, Drs. Dennis Selkoe and Reisa Sperling are leading and pioneering innovative approaches to advance the prevention and treatment of this devastating disease.
Thank you for joining me in this fight to prevent Alzheimer’s. Together we can make a difference—now and for future generations.
