On Saturday, April 28, co-founders Carolyn Mastrangelo and Barbara Geiger held the third annual Running 4 Answers fundraiser in Roseland, N.J.—their most successful race to date. Each year, this fun run/walk not only brings people together to honor the memories of loved ones who have been stricken with Alzheimer’s disease, but it also raises money toward finding a cure.
This year, Cure Alzheimer’s senior vice president, Mike Curren, attended the event along with 145 registered runners and 125 walkers. Together, they raised $40,000 for Cure Alzheimer’s Fund, bringing Running 4 Answers’ three-year total to $93,000.
“We are so appreciative of Mastrangelo and Geiger’s commitment to our cause,” says Curren. “Each year they continue to raise more and more money and reach more and more people. It’s amazing what they’ve been able to accomplish.”
