Our goal here is to not only raise funds for Alzheimer's but we want to be able to spread knowledge of this terrible disease to the SU campus and to the surrounding communities. The Baby-Boomers are now all growing older, and we will see an incredible increase in the population that is affected by Alzheimer's disease. Much of the younger population do not know about this disease, and if they do, they do not know much. It is important to start funding and finding a cure now, because it is likely that many of us in the younger generation will be affected by this horrible disease. I have sat on the side lines and watch 2 of my family members suffer with this disease, and now I have to sit and watch as my grandfather slowly forgets his life, and his loved ones. Well I don't want to sit and watch anymore, I want to make a difference for my grandfather and for everyone else who struggles with this disease. We need to spread awareness and knowledge of this disease, and we need to fund a cure to end Alzheimer's!
