ALZHEIMER'S MEMORY WALK SEPTEMBER 22 - Marietta Sorority Has Pledge Goal


I am a member of the Beta Xi Chapter of Alpha Xi Delta at Marietta College. This fall our chapter is participating in the Alzheimer's Memory Walk in Marietta, Ohio.

We are determined to make a difference for the millions of American families that are caring for a loved one with Alzheimer's and for the millions of people fighting this disease by participating in the 2007 Memory Walk. As a chapter, we have committed ourselves to raising money for Alzheimer research.

Currently, over 5 million Americans have Alzheimer's disease. Unless we find a way to change the course, 16 million Americans could have Alzheimer's by 2050. The Alzheimer's Association, the world leader in Alzheimer's support, research and care, is dedicated to finding prevention methods, treatments and an eventual cure for the disease.

We want to fight this devastating disease, but we can't do it without the help of people like you. Funds raised at Memory Walk support research that is on the brink of promising new treatments to slow and prevent Alzheimer's and local programs to improve the lives of individuals living with the disease. Our sorority has pledged to set personal goals of $200 each.

Together we would raise well over $2000 to support the Alzheimer's Association, which provides research, support and education for those living with the disease, their families and the caregivers. Would you please consider making a donation? You can give online at the link below and help us meet our goals.

On behalf of the millions of Americans who are currently living with Alzheimer's, thank you for your time and generosity and for supporting our efforts.

Thank you,

Amanda Lay
