Jillian's Bowlathon to End Alzheimers

Endurance Sport Fundraising members,

Please join us as Grace and I are hosting a a fun fundraising bowlathon for Alzheimers at Lucky Strike and Jillian's in Boston! We hope to see you there!

As some of you know our family is directly impacted by the disease. The Alzheimers organization has been very helpful to our family and we are grateful of that.

Until recently, there was very little known about Alzheimer's Disease. It is like efforts by the Alzheimer's Association and participants like us that awareness has been spread and research has been supported. As you may or may not know, our family has been affected by Alzheimer's Disease in all aspects of our lives. We have seen the seriousness of this disease firsthand. Grace and her family lost their grandmother to Alzheimer's in 2011, and we are currently supporting Margie, Grace's mother, and aunt, Nancy, in their battle with early-onset Alzheimer's. We have seen and felt how it has impacted our families. In running the Boston Marathon this April, we hope to speak up and fight for those of our loved ones and others who cannot speak for themselves.

Grace and I will be running the 2014 Boston Marathon for the Alzheimers team and raising money to support a cause we deeply believe in. We have had first hand experience with just how much this organization does for those families impacted by the disease. It is truly a great organization which is why we have decided to support them and give back for all they help they have given us.

Jillian's is giving us some of their bowling lanes on February 20th from 6-8pm. If you are not someone who likes to bowl you are still welcome. We plan on having a few prize drawings, and a silent auction.

If you are going to bowl we have been restricted to 40 people bowling, but anyone can come and join the rest of the party. We are asking those who would like to bowl make a minimum donation of $25.00 but you are welcome to give more.

We look forward to having a great time with you on the night of the 20th of February and will keep you updated on our marathon training as well.

If you can not make the event please consider donating to our cause. Our fundraising page can be found here. http://alz.kintera.org/boston2014/teammargie

Thank you all so much for your support, it means so much to us.
