Marathon run raises funds for Alzheimer's Association

To the editor:

We would like to say thank-you to our neighbors and friends in the Newburyport area for their generous support of the Alzheimer’s Association MA/NH through our Boston Marathon Run to End Alzheimer effort. This was a six-month commitment to training in a less than hospitable winter and fundraising in a year that was overwhelming to donors.

We finished the marathon and thanks to the individual support and the help of The Daily News, Immaculate Conception Parish, the Tannery Elf campaign, Flatbread Pizza and the local business community, we were able to raise $12,363. Our Run to End Alzheimer team of 48 runners collectively raised over $450,000.

The Alzheimer’s Association continues to lead in working for a cure and for the understanding and support of those living with the disease now. We will continue to go the distance until there is an end of Alzheimer’s.
