Hi! I have decided to raise money to help fight Alzheimer’s disease. Alzheimer’s is a progressive brain disease that causes problems with memory, reasoning, behavior and motor skills. The disease is ultimately fatal. In May 2015, my Poppy Howie died from this disease and for the past 2 years my Grandpa Jerry has been struggling daily with memory loss and every day activities. So for me, Alzheimer’s disease has had a big impact on my life.
As part of my Mitzvah project I have decided to raise money to fight Alzheimer’s disease. I will train for and run the Leatherman’s Loop, which is a 6.2 mile trail race on April 24th.
Please help me fight Alzheimer’s disease, not just for my Poppy and Grandpa but for anyone who may one day have a family member or a friend fighting this disease. Please consider donating to this worthy cause. Every dollar helps!
