For far too many of us, Alzheimer’s is a cause that is deeply personal. One such woman is Carolyn Mastrangelo.
Carolyn’s mother has suffered from early onset Alzheimer’s for over 10 years. A personal trainer and avid runner, Carolyn wanted to incorporate her love of running and apply it to raising funds and awareness of this devastating disease. To do just that, she joined forces with her friend and fellow runner, Barbara Geiger, to create the inaugural “Running 4 Answers” 4-mile run to benefit Cure Alzheimer’s Fund!
Carolyn and Barbara picked the title “Running 4 Answers” because they understand all too well the devastating effects of Alzheimer’s and the growing need for answers. Every 70 seconds another American gets Alzheimer’s disease — that’s 35 million people worldwide! We must find a cure, and soon.
Events like “Running 4 Answers” go a long way in helping us spread awareness and reach our goal of curing Alzheimer’s in the next 10 years! Thank you, Carolyn and Barbara!
Join us on April 10th as we participate in the “Running 4 Answers” race through beautiful Roseland and Essex Fells, NJ. If you would like to be a race sponsor, make a donation, become a volunteer or run in the inaugural race, visit www.running4answers.org!
