THE STORY:

I will be running the Bay State Marathon October 22nd Alzheimer's is a type of dementia that causes problems with memory, thinking and behavior. Alzheimer's disease accounts for 60 to 80 percent of dementia cases. All proceeds will be going to the Alzheimer's Association in Memory of my grandfather, Charles "Bud" Turner. You guys know how much I love running and sports. I inherited that from my Grandfather. My grandfather was very athletic and loved adventure. He ran, played hockey until he was 86, played football overseas while serving in the Air Force My grandfather loved music like me and most of all he had the best sense of humor. I carry my grandfather's memory everyday of my life and I'd think he'd be happy to know that those 26.2 miles are run because I inherited that from him. Love you, CWT.
