In honor of my Grandfather Bernard Isaacs, I am hosting a snowboard / skateboard fundraiser event to benefit the Alzheimer’s Association. The event is called “Ollie’s for Alzheimer’s!” With help from my sponsors, I intend to award prizes for the participants involved. My goal is to raise awareness about Alzheimer’s and give my family and friends, along with the surrounding community, an opportunity to participate and contribute toward the cause. Proceeds from the event will be forwarded to the National Alzheimer’s Association office, from which you will receive an acknowledgement. If you would like to show your support in any other way, please contact me personally at 218-428-5568 or ViktorSimco@gmail.com.
Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive brain disorder that gradually destroys a person’s memory and ability to learn, reason, make judgments, communicate and carry out daily activities. Currently, more than 5 million Americans suffer from the disease. The mission of the Alzheimer’s Association is to eliminate Alzheimer’s disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health.
Funds raised will support programs and service including a 24/7 multilingual telephone Information Helpline, support groups and classes for individuals and families, education programs for professional caregivers, one-on-one family care consultations, public advocacy for better care and research into better treatments and a cure. To receive more information about Alzheimer’s disease or the Alzheimer’s Association programs and services, please contact the Association at 1-800-272-3900 or visit www.alz.org.
With Highest Regards,
Viktor Bernard Simco
