Dear Family and Friends,

On April 15, 2013, I will be joining my fiancée Travis Songer to run the Boston Marathon for the Cure Alzheimer’s Fund.

The Cure Alzheimer’s Fund is committed to funding research with the “highest probability of preventing, slowing or reversing Alzheimer’s disease.”   Statistics show that every 70 seconds, another American is diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease.  Worldwide, 35 million people have the disease, and if we do nothing that number will skyrocket to 115 million in 2050.
