As many of you are already aware, Dick Hollander passed away this past year after a long battle with Alzheimer’s disease. We’d like to thank everyone for their kind wishes and condolences. Additionally, we would like to extend a special thank you to all past sponsors, donors, volunteers, and participants in the Dick Hollander Open.

We’re Janet Hilts and Susan Hilts Brown, twin sisters. Our dear friend Alexander has been our close buddy since we were in diapers and now has early onset Alzheimer's. As we help care for him, we’re training in our hills and raising money for the cure at the same time. We’re no athletes, but we walked a marathon to celebrate our 60th birthday. Now, three years later, we’re preparing for another marathon in honor of our beloved friend and all who suffer from this disease.
