EVENT DATE: Nov 01, 2015
This November, we will be completing our lifelong goal of running the TCS New York City Marathon in order to raise awareness and support for the Alzheimer’s Association in loving memory of my/Jen’s grandmother. We are looking forward to running 26.2 miles in honor of those who have suffered from the disease and their families. We’ve been training hard these last several months and couldn’t be more excited for this great challenge.
Alzheimer’s has touched every one of us in some way. One in three seniors die with Alzheimer’s or other form of dementia each year making it the 6th leading cause of death in the US. It is one of the most costly diseases, costing $220 billion a year. As a result, 1 in 7 American’s personally take on caregiving for their diagnosed family member, many of them spending over 40 hours per week. Having witnessed this suffering with my grandmother and the tremendous challenge of my family’s support in caring for her, Alzheimer’s Association was a natural organization to support. ALZ provides caretaker support free of charge with an abundance of services: early stage services, support groups, care consultation, caregiver training, trial match, 24 hour helpline and so much more.
Our goal is to raise $10,000 for the Alzheimer’s Association. We hope that you will support us in this great cause. Any donation, even the smallest will help our effort.
Thank you in advance for your support and generosity! We look forward to seeing you on race day.
