In a slight departure from the usual UTB offerings, in this article we’re asking you to help us out. Our Editor-in-chief, UTB Brad, is taking part in the Fresno Walk To End Alzheimer’s on September 12th and we’d really appreciate it if you could consider sponsoring him for any amount you can manage.
Alzheimer’s is a progressive, degenerative disease of the brain, affecting more than 5 million Americans (as well as over 700,000 Canadians and more than 850,000 UK residents – 44 million people worldwide ) and without raising funds for more research, effective medication and better care facilities, that number will only continue to grow. Almost every one of us knows someone affected by Alzheimer’s (either a family member or that of someone you know), and the sad truth is there is currently no known cure for Alzheimer’s.
Brad is taking part in the Walk To End Alzheimer’s in memory of his Gramma, who sadly passed away a couple of months ago; if you are able, please donate anything you can to Brad’s fundraising page, which can be found here. The Walk takes place on September 12th, so make sure you visit Brad’s page before then!
