A Race to Remember (AR2R)
5K Run/Walk
November 2, 2019.

To date, AR2R has helped to raise over $544,000 to support the Alzheimer’s Association. We appreciate all of those who have participated, volunteered, and the corporate sponsors as we couldn’t do it without you.

We look forward to this year’s race and invite you to join us to raise awareness for this very special cause.

Important Facts About Dementia
  • All forms of dementia continue to be on the rise.
  • Alzheimer’s is the 6th leading cause of death, taking more lives than breast and prostate cancer combined.
  • Frontotemporal (FTD) dementia is a rare form of dementia with only 10% -20% diagnosed. FTD commonly affects people aged 45 to 64.
  • FTD is characterized by progressive atrophy of several different areas of the brain, particularly the frontal and/or temporal lobes, the parts of the brain that control “executive functions” such as decision-making, personality, social behavior and language, resulting in increased dependency on caregivers
  • There are no treatments to slow or stop the progression of Frontotemporal dementia.
  • This year marks 12 years since Gary Bellanca was diagnosed with early on-set dementia and re-diagnosed with Frontotemporal dementia. He is unable to walk and speak and remains at home.
