BENEFITING: ALZHEIMERS ASSOCIATION
EVENT DATE: Nov 17, 2013
I'm running a half marathon in memory of my Grandma Joy, and for all the other parents and grandparents afflicted by dementia and Alzheimer's, for all the family members who have helped loved ones through hard times, and the caregivers and researchers dedicated to improving the lives of those suffering. Although I never got the chance to know Grandma Joy, I'm dedicating my run in Philly to her by donating money to the Alzheimer's Association. The Alzheimer's Association is the largest non-profit organization funding research into this disease. I know money can be tight for all us recent college grads, but every dollar donated is greatly appreciated.
