Will You Join Us?

Dear Friends & Family,

Over the last year and a half I have seen first-hand the devastating effects of a horrible disease. My girlfriend, Kim, has a loved one who is living with Alzheimer's. It has greatly impacted her family and has quickly made passionate advocates out of us all.

Today, over 5 million Americans are living with Alzheimer's, and with almost 80 million Baby Boomers approaching the age of greatest risk for this fatal disease, the need to find a cure is more urgent than ever.

In order to help in the fight, Kim and I will be participating in the Memory Walk to raise funds and awareness for Alzheimer's disease. The funds we raise will go directly towards supporting the efforts of the Alzheimer's Association, the nation's leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer's care. We set a sizable fundraising goal of $3,000 for Team Reminisce, but we are confident that with your help we can take big steps toward ending Alzheimer's.

Will you please consider partnering with us by making a donation? A gift of even $25 or $50 would greatly help the Alzheimer's Association do their work - work that has gained a new relevance for Kim and I. Your gift is very much appreciated, I trust that together we can help to end Alzheimer's!

The Alzheimer's Association has made it safe, secure and easy for you to donate online. Just click this link to visit the Team Reminisce Giving Page:

Thank you so much, we look forward to sharing the fantastic results of your generosity!

Gratefully,
Sam & Kim
