THE STORY:

 

Dear Friend,

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.

Your combined support will benefit the Alzheimer's Association.  The Alzheimer's Association mission is to eliminate Alzheimer's disease through the advancement of research; to provide enhanced care and support of all affected.  Check out their site: http://www.alz.org/ 

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!
