BENEFITING: ALZHEIMERS ASSOCIATION
ORGANIZER: ALZHEIMERS ASSOCIATION
EVENT: 2015 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 20, 2015
I'm running the Boston Marathon once again on behalf of the Alzheimer's Association, which funds research and programs and services to help families affected by Alzheimer's. My family has experienced the effects of Alzheimer's; our mother died in 2012 after a long journey with Alzheimer's, and though she maintained her grace and beauty until the end, the losses were huge. So I'm running to honor her memory, and to help others affected by this devastating disease.
The MA/NH Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars through its "Run to End Alzheimer's" program, and once again is fielding a team in this Boston Marathon. Thank you for whatever help you are able to give in this effort.
