THE STORY:

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page.  This is my second year representing the ALZHEIMERS ASSOCIATION on  their Run to End Alzheimer's - Boston Marathon team running in the 119th Boston Marathon® on April 20, 2015. 

My support of the Alzheimer's Association is to help raise much needed funds and awareness to fight this dreadful disease but especially to honor my mother - Rita Trotta, and my father-in-law Michael Klapper, who both suffered with Alzheimer's. 

I joined this team to do my part to ensure this disease is stopped.  It will bankrupt the country by 2050 if we don’t find a disease modifying treatment.  There are not enough caregivers or professionals to deal with the rising numbers.  No other major life threatening disease is growing as quickly.  And it affects women in greater numbers, partly because they are more often the caregivers.

My mother’s symptoms started in her mid 60’s and she quickly declined over the next seven years.  It first struck me when I was visiting her in Teaneck and she introduced me as her nephew three times in an hour.  I have heard or read too many similar stories.

Join me and my fabulous teammates in supporting this great organization to prevent the next generation from the personal and financial impact.  And if you get a chance, come check us out as we participate in one of the great American spectacles on Marathon Monday in Boston.  

The Alzheimer’s Association is the third largest nonprofit research funder in the world (albeit far behind the US and Chinese governments).  Its investments in science have led to the first prevention trials now taking place.  They offer care counseling and professional training to thousands each year – in person or over a 24 hour help line available to anyone nationwide

In 2014 the RUN TRI RIDE to End Alzheimer's raised over $1 million to support programs and services for those impacted with the disease and our marathon team alone raised over $475,000!
