My Promise to Papa - Run Mount Rushmore for Alzheimer's Research

In partnership with Northwestern Medicine, Run4Papa has launched an initiative to help honor a promise made to Papa to take him to Mount Rushmore before he passed away. Visiting this iconic landmark was a life long dream of his, but unfortunately, due to the aggressive nature of his dementia, we were unable to travel to this location while he was alive.

Fast forward exactly six years later to the day since his passing, Run4Papa is going to make good on that promise! The stars align for this moment and the theme of #21 is literally pushing me toward Mount Rushmore because:

  1. Papa passed away on September 21, 2013
  2. This will be my 21st half marathon
  3. This will be my 21st different state
  4. The race is on September 21, 2019

OUR GOAL: To raise $2,121 for Alzheimer's research and other related dementias by running the Mount Rushmore Half Marathon

Please know that 100% of your donation goes to fund The Mesulam Center for Cognitive Neurology and Alzheimer's Disease at Northwestern University's Feinberg School of Medicine.
