Thanks to so many friends and supporters, Team DFA raised $5,500 for the Central Massachusetts Walk to End Alzheimer’s Disease on September 25. Of that total, I’m grateful to report that I personally raised over $4,300!
This year’s walk brought in more than $172,000 to help the Alzheimer’s Association advance important research into better treatments and a possible cure. The Association also offers care, education, support and resources for the millions of Americans afflicted with this devastating disease.
As a geriatric care manager working with many families who wrestle with Alzheimer’s, as co-chair of the Worcester Alzheimer’s Partnership, and as one who has experienced the pain of this fatal disease in my own family, I am determined to do my part to help find a cure.
Thanks to your support, I am grateful to be among the top five fundraisers in Central Massachusetts and a member of the Elite Feet category statewide. We beat our goal of $4,000 this year. With your continued support, I hope we will do even better next year and in the years to come, until this disease is defeated.
