I am so excited to be a ROOKIE on Team Blonde this year and to participate in the incredible organization that is BvB Dallas ("Blondes v. Brunettes"). As an organization over the past 8 years, BvB Dallas has raised over $2.3 million; raising over $490K last year alone (wow!?). The funds raised this season will go to UT Southwestern, UTD Center for Brain Health and the Baylor AT&T Memory Center.
Alzheimer's Disease is the 6th leading cause of death in the United States. More than 5 million Americans are living with the disease, and it is the only disease among the "top 10 causes of death" in America that cannot be prevented, cured or even slowed.
The 9th Annual powder-puff game is on Saturday, August 13, 2016 at The Cotton Bowl in Dallas, and every $25 donation gets you one ticket to the game. Because of the amazing generosity I've seen so far this summer (and because why would I NOT continue to raise money for this amazing cause?), my personal goal has continued to rise throughout the season. I really appreciate any and all support--remember, every little bit helps!
Thanks in advance for your help in the fight to #TackleAlz! GOOOOO TEAM BLONDE! : )
