Run2Day Ladies Damloop 2013
I am working on my PhD in the field of Neurodegeneration, especially Alzheimer's disease (AD). I am looking into new biomarkers to improve diagnosis of the disease and into molecular pathways. Please sponsor my run to support AD research.
If you know me even a little bit, you know that I am not very athletic. However, this is an important cause and I will participate in the Run2Day Ladies Damloop 2013 to show everyone that I am taking this very seriously. I will run 4 miles (6.4 km).
Alzheimer Nederland (http://www.alzheimer-nederland.nl/) is an organisation that funds research projects like my own. They also give away travel grants like the one I received last year for the AAIC conference in Vancouver. This is my way of "giving back".
Results yielding from that kind of research will not only benefit people in the Netherlands, but worldwide.
Please support my cause by donating whatever you can spare. Every Euro is appreciated.
With your donation you will also motivate me to complete the "From couch to 5k in 9 weeks" running programm. Thank you in advance for your support!
