An update about Bill...
October 01, 2017

It is with great sadness, that I must report that Bill, my stepdad, passed away yesterday morning.  He fought against the Alzheimer's with all  See more
Molly McEwan

THE STORY:

I am running the NYC Marathon this year for the third time.  But this year I want to make it bigger than just running a race.  I want to raise much-needed funds to help fight against Alzheimer's disease.  Alzheimer's took my Grandma Bette McEwan many years ago, and it is in the process of taking my stepdad Bill now.  It is a cruel and relentless killer that hurts not only the person who has it, but all of the loved ones around them who feel so helpless as they try to be caregivers.  So this year I'm going to run for Bette and Bill and for everyone else who is dealing with this horrible disease.  Watching your loved one slip away and forget a little more each day and grow a little more frustrated each day as on some level they know something is terribly wrong is heartbreaking and excruciating.  More than 5 million Americans currently suffer from Alzheimer's or related dementias, and worldwide a new case is diagnosed EVERY 4 SECONDS, and there are currently no treatments that will stop or reverse the progress of Alzheimer's disease.  Much research is being done, but much more remains to combat this crisis.  There are a few drugs that can slow the progress for a  while and there are drugs that can help with symptoms as the disease worsens, but that is only the beginning and not nearly enough to adequately care for those who have it.  Please consider donating to help the ADDF... no contribution is too small.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart.


ALZHEIMERS DRUG DISCOVERY FOUNDATION wrote -

The ADDF is proud to be an official charity partner for the 2017 TCS New York City Marathon. 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.
