Dr. Stork and his family walked as Team Stork in the Walk to End Alzheimer's, on September 15, 2013, in Madison, Wisconsin.
Their team was the second-place fundraiser for the event, raising $2755 for research and care. LMVC clients and friends contributed over half that total - thank you!
The Madison portion of the walk raised over $115,000 as a whole.
Team statement, written by Paige Stork
Ann Stork was, without a doubt, the kindest and most loving woman we have ever known. She would never miss an opportunity to help out the ones she loved, and even total strangers. She was greatly loved and admired by all who met her, but on New Year's Eve, 2008, our beloved friend, mother, grandmother, and wife finally lost a long battle with Alzheimer's Disease. Now it is our turn to do something for her. Join Team Stork in our walk to end Alzheimer's, in raising awareness and funds for Alzheimer's research, and in honor of Ann and for the future of millions.
Currently, more than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer's and that number is expected to grow to as many as 16 million by 2050. Our future is at risk unless we can find a way to change the course of this disease.
We need your support! Please make a donation to help the Alzheimer's Association advance research into prevention, treatments and a cure for Alzheimer's. For the millions already affected by the disease, the Association offers care, education, support and resources in communities nationwide.
