Hello Family, Friends and Colleagues,
I am very happy to announce that I am returning as a member of the "Run to End Alzheimer's - Boston 2015" team and will be running in the 119th Boston Marathon® on April 20, 2015. The 2014 team raised nearly $500,000 to support programs and services for those impacted with the disease. The Boston 2015 team is determined to continue this tradition of success, as we celebrate our 14th year!
November 7, 2014 marked the second anniversary of my father's death. As most of you know, I have lost both my father and my grandmother to this horrific disease. So my mission is to do and give all that I can in terms of funding research and prevention of this disease, as well as to the programs and support services to aid victims, families and caregivers who live with this disease each and every day.
To those of you who donated last year for my first Boston Marathon, I thank you so very much, and ask that you give as generously as you did last year. For those of you who are new, I ask you to support me not only in this run, but in the overall race to stop this disease.
Please take time each day to appreciate the life you have, and cherish the moments you share with your family and friends.
