GREATER MARYLAND CHAPTER

The health and safety of our constituents, volunteers and staff remain our driver as we address the COVID restrictions.

EXCITING NEWS!
A children's kickball tournament raised thousands of dollars in the fight to end Alzheimer's disease. Grant, 13, April, 11, and little brother, Gavin Livne hosted the game in honor of their grandmother, Idaline Lipsky, who has Alzheimer's disease, as part of the Alzheimer's Association's fundraiser, "The Longest Day." The children initially set a goal to raise $5,000, but they exceeded that and raised more than $9,500 for Alzheimer's research. The games were played Monday at Fort Garrison Elementary School in Pikesville. Watch the video HERE.
