Thank you so much for your continued support of the Alzheimer’s Association, Greater Pennsylvania Chapter through my association with the AlzStars Pittsburgh marathon running team. Your past support has advanced research efforts and has helped provide valuable resources to families and caretakers of loved ones compromised by this disease.
Despite all the encouraging progress toward a cure, the need for ongoing support is more urgent now than ever before. Today, with the increasing older population, the number of Alzheimer’s and other dementia patients is projected to DOUBLE by mid-century. In Pennsylvania alone, Alzheimer’s in patients 65 to 74 years old is on pace to increase over 27% from 2017 to 2025. That’s a short 8-year span!
On May 6, 2018, I will be running the Pittsburgh Half Marathon with the AlzStar Team to help keep the momentum moving toward a world without Alzheimer’s. For me, the 13.2 mile run (or any endurance event for that matter) is a reminder that through a focused effort, something BIG can be achieved.
Please help us achieve a world without Alzheimer’s - and that would be BIG!!!
Thank you so much!
