1st Annual Reason to Hope Fundraising Breakfast
On Wednesday, April 24, over 170 people gathered at the Ted Constant Convecation Center in Norfolk to demonstrate their commitment to advancing Alzheimer's research and sustaining critical Association programs and services. Old Dominion University's President John Broderick shared his personal story and commitment to eradicating this awful disease and thanked the Alzheimer's Association for being on the forefront of groundbreaking research and support to families having to navigate the daily challenges Alzheimer's brings. Local champions, Betty Rose Facer, an ODU professor and our Board Chair, David Rabon Stephens, shared their reasons to hope by invoking strong emotion from the crowd about being caregivers.
The Reason to Hope event plays a critical role in our ability to meet the growing demands of Alzheimer's. Be on the lookout for the next Reason to Hope Breakfast in 2014.
