THE STORY:

I have been a Speech-Language Pathologist for 11 years working as a home health therapist. About 80-90% of my patients suffer from Alzheimer's disease as well as other types of dementia. After working with them day after day, the patient and their family members become family to me. Every day I see the negative effects dementia has on people, not just the individual but the whole family. I would love to see a cure for this disease in my lifetime! This disease really hits home to me, not only from my work, but also from family members that have been impacted as well. I am honored to have this opportunity to run the NYC marathon on behalf of ADDF, knowing that 100% of the money raised will be going to the research to find a drug to one day cure this disease. WANT TO SPONSOR ME FOR A MILE? I'm looking for 26 people or businesses that will donate $100 to sponsor me for each mile I run. You choose the mile!

Donations to our team, Runners for Alzheimer's Research, directly support research into new treatments for this devastating disease. In 2016, our eighteen team members raised over $100,000, far surpassing their goal. Though we are making great strides, Alzheimer's remains the only top 10 cause of death in the U.S. that can't be prevented, cured or even slowed. By supporting drug discovery research, our marathon team will help conquer Alzheimer's! If you are interested in running for our team, please visit our team page. Founded in 1998 by co-chairmen Leonard A. and Ronald S. Lauder, the ADDF provides funding to leading scientists who are conducting the most promising, innovative Alzheimer’s drug research worldwide. The mission of the ADDF is to rapidly accelerate the discovery of drugs to prevent, treat and cure Alzheimer's disease. To learn more about the ADDF, please visit our website.
