Deadline Extended; More Support Needed for Specialty License Plate
Take a Stand for the Non-Curable Disease!
Eighty thousand people in Kentucky right now have Alzheimer's disease and that number is only going to grow. Having the plates would raise awareness of the disease, which will become more prevalent as Kentucky's population ages.
“The Alzheimer’s specialty plate has been a dream of ours for years,” said Teri Shirk, Executive Director of the Greater Kentucky and Southern Indiana chapter. “Not only will the plates be a very visible reminder of those suffering with Alzheimer’s, but their sale will also help raise funds for local education initiatives.”
Alzheimer's License Plate Update:
Applications received as of 4/8/14: 418. We still need: 482 more!
Deadline: We received great news regarding our pursuit of an Alzheimer's Awareness License Plate in the State of Kentucky; our petition has been extended for an additional two years! We now have until June 2015 to secure a total of 900 applications.
Next steps: We still need your help to meet our goal! Spread the word to family, friends, neighbors and colleagues. Urge them to apply for this beautiful, purple license plate to help raise Alzheimer’s awareness and show support for those living with the disease as well as their caregivers.
