I have decided to run the Auburn Classic Half-Marathon on March 5th, 2016 in honor of my granddad, Papa, and to raise money for the Alzheimer's Association. Alzheimer's is the sixth leading cause of death in the U.S. and currently affects 5.3 million Americans. In turn, Alzheimer's is the only cause of death in the top ten that cannot be cured, prevented, or slowed. This and other dementias need further research to help find better treatment options and strategies for not only those affected, but also the families of those affected. Please support me in my cause to help fight this terrible disease!
