Crawlz for Alz is a bar crawl at the beautiful Jersey Shore. Our mission is to raise money and awareness about Alzheimer's Disease as we crawl our way down the Seaside Boardwalk. Proceeds benefit Hilarity for Charity, a charity where funds are directed to help families struggling with Alzheimer’s care, increase support groups nationwide, and fund cutting edge research.
The event will take place on Saturday, March 24, 2018 at 2:00 p.m. We will start/meet at the Saw Mill bar and spend about an hour at each bar. There is a map on the page of all the bars we intend to go to (5 total). Each person who is interested in crawling will have to make a $20 donation. You can either make a donation right online through our page or bring cash or check when you arrive. Checks should be made out to Hilarity for Charity. If you donate online, please put your name so I can mark you for the bar crawl.
We also ask people to spread the word and get outside donations to our cause from friends, family, etc. You can simply share our link or we have pledge sheets. Participants can request pledges from other people. They can just give a general donation or you can have people pledge an amount for each bar the participant makes it to. So for example, if someone pledges $5 for each bar and you make it to 5 bars, that person will owe $25 to our cause. If you want a pledge sheet there is an image on the page you can print or email me, firstname.lastname@example.org and I will email you the pdf.
Many people have been affected by this disease in so many different ways. My family has had two people which have been taken away from us by Alzheimers. My father's mother, Gram, as we all called her was a beautful proud Irish woman. She loved to travel, sing, and be around her family. My mother's father, or Pop-pop to his 25 grandchildren, was a strong, happy, intelligent man. He loved crosswords, the beach, and his family. Watching these people I knew and loved slip away and become a shell of the person they were, was awful.
Everyday more and more families become affected by this disease. We have to start YESTERDAY raising awareness and money to help support these families, find cures and beat this disease. Join our fight! #ENDALZ
