It’s a helpless feeling, watching someone you love battle Alzheimer's disease. So, I decided to take action. I am participating in a very special event called the Alzheimer’s Association Memory Walk®.
I am walking for the more than 5 million Americans currently living with Alzheimer’s disease. I am walking because I can, and because I should.
The Alzheimer’s Association, the world leader in Alzheimer’s research, care and support, is dedicated to finding prevention methods, treatments and an eventual cure for the disease.
I hope to be able to raise at least $500 to support the local Alzheimer’s Association, which provides consultation, information and referral, and support programs to those affected by Alzheimer’s.
I know I can do this with the support of friends like you. Would you please consider making a donation? Please visit my online fundraising headquarters at Team Lolly's Chickadees , to learn more and to make a donation directly online, or mail in a donation using the enclosed pledge form. Please note that checks should be made payable to the Alzheimer's Association, and are tax deductible.
Thank you in advance for your time and generosity. Please ask your employer if they have a matching gift program. They may double your donation.
Sorry for the guilt-trippy form letter. But hey, whatever works.
I'm walking in honor of my grandmother..Alzheimer's Disease affected one of the funniest, brightest women I will ever know.
If you're close to Pittsburgh, join our team...we're a good time :)
I've been fighting with the website/sign-up stuff..if the links are screwy, let me know. I just got the damned thing to load!
