BENEFITING: Alzheimer's Association
EVENT: 2017 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 17, 2017
I am running the Boston Marathon first and foremost, for my Mom. My Mom was diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s six years ago at age 54 when I was 19 years old. Since then, Alzheimer’s has become a part of our daily lives and the lives our our family and friends.
I run to to make a difference, to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support, and research. I run for Paula’s Posse, our community of family and friends who continue to lift and support us; for my dad, the most selfless and inspirational caregiver; and for my mom, for continuing to teach and empower us. I run for a world without Alzheimer’s.
