Thanks for Making World Alzheimer's Day a Success!

I just got an update from the Alzheimer's Association in my email this evening. I wanted to pass along the good news: the World Alzheimer's Day fundraising challenge was a success and raised over $22,000.00!

Didn't get a chance to make a donation? No worries! Any time is a good time to make a donation to the Alzheimer's Association.

Dear Selena,
Thanks to loyal friends like you, my World Alzheimer's Day challenge succeeded in raising over $22,000, far exceeding the $5,300 I pledged in recognition of the 5.3 million Americans with Alzheimer's. My heart is full.

I have received so many notes today from people who are champions in so many ways - participating in Memory Walk, talking to their friends about getting involved or participating as advocates. Whether you made your contribution on this day or another, it is amazing to see so many people joining together to make a difference.
You have proved once again to be a true champion in the Alzheimer's movement. You can be very proud of your contributions.
With sincere appreciation,
Angela Geiger
Vice President
