THE STORY:

Friends & Family,

As many of you may know, our grandmother, Penie, has been battling Alzheimer's disease for over a decade. For those of you who may not have had the pleasure of meeting our wonderful grandmother, she is an amazing woman and role model for each of us. She has always been the life of the party and knows how to make everyone laugh. Her tenacity, determination and our grandfather’s endless love and support is why she has battled Alzheimer's for so long. As our family and friends have watched the devastating impact of this illness, we have struggled with not being able to help her. Today, more than five million Americans are courageously fighting Alzheimer’s disease. Sadly, this means that there are millions more families struggling to help their loved ones and make a difference.

Last year, our grandfather, John Marr, found a way to join the fight against Alzheimer’s. He started the Josephine and John Marr Alzheimer’s Research Fund at Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH). The fund supports world-renowned researchers at BWH who are focused on finding a way to stop Alzheimer’s disease altogether. Backed by more than 30 years of research, BWH leaders, Drs. Dennis Selkoe and Reisa Sperling are leading and pioneering innovative approaches to advance the prevention and treatment of this devastating disease.

This is why, on October 2nd, we (along with our good friend Laura Carfang) will be running the Maine Marathon Relay to support the Josephine & John Marr Alzheimer's Research Fund at Brigham and Women's Hospital. 

Please know that no donation is too small. We would love any and all of the support that we can get. Together we can make a difference—now and for future generations.

Thank you for all of your support,

Stephanie, Andrea and Jen
