It's Boston Marthon Eve........
April 16, 2017
BENEFITING: Alzheimer's Association
EVENT: 2017 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 17, 2017
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 Marathon" team and will
be running in the 121st Boston Marathon® on April 17, 2017.
The 2016 Run Tri Ride team raised over $1.2 million to support programs and services
for those impacted by the disease. The Boston 2017 team is determined to
continue this tradition of success!
November 7, 2016 marked the fourth anniversary of my father's death. As most
of you know I've lost both my father and my grandmother to this horrific
disease. Add to these losses the numerous friends who are affected by this disease as either a victim or a caregiver.
So my purpose is clear... to do all that I can to support the Alzheimer's Association's mission to eliminate Alzheimer’s disease through the advancement of research, to provide care and support for all those affected by the disease, and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health.
To those of you who have donated to my first three Boston Marathons, 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 sponsors, I ask you to support me not only in
this run, but in the overall race to end this disease.
I hope you take time each day to appreciate and celebrate life, and to cherish the
moments you share with your family and friends.
Wishing you a very happy holiday season,
