Alzheimer's is the 6th leading cause of death in the United States and is the only cause of death in the top 10 that cannot be prevented, cured, or slowed. Nearly two-thirds of Americans with Alzheimer's disease are women, and one in three seniors dies with Alzheimer's or another form of dementia.
This summer, 180 of my newest friends and I will be spending our time sweating, fundraising and spreading awareness of this awful disease. We fight for not only those directly affected by its grasp, but the caretakers and family members that stand beside them day in and day out during their battle. In the last 8 years, BvB Dallas has raised over $2,000,000 in the fight against Alzheimer's disease, funding reasearch through beneficiaries in the DFW Metroplex!
