Hi!!! Faimly and ! I will be running the New York City Marathon to Fight the Good Fight Against Alzheimer's.
This is the time of the year when I humbly ask you to please help me in my efforts to end this terrible disease. This year our team Race Against Alzheimer's (RAALZ) has joined the Alzheimer's Drug Discovery Foundation (ADDF) to do so. 100% Donations directly support Alzheimer's research.
I run to honor the memory of my mother Carmen Leon who passed six years ago after battling for 10 years with Alzheimer's. It is my mission to help find a cure for this terrible disease by raising funds and awareness through running.
Training and running these races is grueling but yet extremely joyful and rewarding because its fueled by love, passion, pain for losing those who you love the most, and your support. Every time I step on the pavement I think of my Mom, ALZ patients, my friends who lost their parents to ALZ, the ones whose parents are going through it right now, and caregivers. I think of every person who has the slightest possibility of suffering from this disease, I think of my family, my loved ones, and I think of the day when we discover a cure for Alzheimer's...
Your donation means so much to me and others that want to END ALzheimer's. Today, Alzheimer's disease affects more than 44 million people and is the only top 10 cause of death that cannot be prevented, cured or slowed. But we have the power to stop this devastating disease in its tracks. To learn more about the ADDF, please visit the website: alzdiscovery.org
Your donation will help me FIND THE FIRST ALZHEIMER'S SURVIVOR!!
Thank you in advance!!!
