Athletes to End Alzheimer's 5K set for Aug. 2
On Aug. 2, a new event will come to Bethany Beach: Athletes to End Alzheimer’s 5K Run/Walk, presented by Loftus Wealth Strategies. Race proceeds will benefit the Alzheimer's Association Delaware Valley Chapter.
Michael Loftus of Loftus Wealth Strategies, a wealth management and financial planning business in Millville, is the event organizer. Loftus’ father Jim died in October 2013 after a battle with Alzheimer’s disease. Loftus and his family learned firsthand the kind of support people who are living with the disease and their families need. According to the Alzheimer’s Association, Alzheimer’s is a type of dementia that causes problems with memory, thinking and behavior; the life-interfering symptoms worsen over time, and there is no cure.
“We hope to raise $15,000 for treatment, research and support for those affected by Alzheimer’s and their caregivers,” said Loftus. “I know when we meet this ambitious goal, the dollars will go miles to benefit the work of this important charity.”
The fast, flat and scenic 5K run/walk features on-course entertainment by DJ Padraig, awesome awards, special tech shirts for all registrants and a post-race party produced by Focus Multi-Sports. The special grand opening registration cost is $25 after March 1. Individuals and teams are encouraged to join the fundraising effort, and cash donations are tax-deductible.
Sponsor and volunteer opportunities are available. For more details or to register, go to www.alzrun.com or the Facebook page ALZRunWalk. For more information about the Alzheimer’s Association Delaware Valley Chapter, go to alz.org/delval.
