In 2012, I lost my beloved grandfather, Papa, who spent the better part of his final years battling Alzheimer's disease. I want to run the Boston Marathon in his memory and in honor of those around me who have lost a loved one the disease or are currently caring for a loved one who suffers from Alzheimer’s disease.

What is Alzheimer's?
Alzheimer's disease causes brain changes that gradually get worse. It's the most common cause of dementia — a group of brain disorders that cause progressive loss of intellectual and social skills, severe enough to interfere with day-to-day life. In Alzheimer's disease, brain cells degenerate and die, causing a steady decline in memory and mental function.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT AND ENCOURAGEMENT!
