The Judy Fund

Dear Friends and Family,

How do you measure 10 years of The Judy Fund?

With your interest, help and support over this last decade, The Judy Fund has grown to more than 1,600 donors giving over $5.1 million in support of the Alzheimer's Association.

As so many of you know, Marshall began this Fund in July 2003 as Judy said goodbye. His vision was clear: He would raise funds from colleagues and friends in her name. And he did – engaging a core group of very generous donors, all of whom are still with us today. He pushed and led us to supporting innovative research and strategic advocacy to have real impact and make concrete differences in this disease.

A lot has happened in the last 10 years, but not enough has changed. We know we must do more. As we continue to push this disease upward to scale the mountain called survivorship, there are summits that allow us to look back while readying for the future.

I encourage you to read about all that you have helped The Judy Fund accomplish – as well as exciting new activities are underway in this annual issue of The Judy Fund newsletter.
