"I have seen the effects firsthand of this awful disease," explains Almack. "Being able to donate money for the research is the first step to finding a cure and helping millions of people lead normal lives."
By donating to his local Chapter, Almack is helping the organization serve people with Alzheimer's disease and their families and caregivers in his local area. Also, funds go across the country to other facilities in need.
Local Chapters Making A Difference
