This year’s Fairfield County Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s is on the morning of Oct. 13. It is a cause important to my family. My brother Jeffrey is this year’s chairperson.
This year I have decided for the first time to form Team Ruden Report in honor of my mother. My hope is with my platforms, it will encourage the local sports world I cover — athletes, coaches, parents and fans — to consider walking with me. I also hope those that are inclined would consider making a donation to support the Alzheimer’s Association of CT.
I have reached out to all the FCIAC fall coaches, and now I am reaching out to the public. Here is my team page, with more information and the chance to join my team and make donations: https://act.alz.org/site/TR/Walk2019/CT-Connecticut?team_id=573079&pg=team&fr_id=12122
Colony Grill is donating a $200 gift certificate to the team that raises the most money. And Yankees general manager Brian Cashman has donated two seats in his private box for a game next year to the person that makes the largest donation.
Alzheimer’s has affected too many families. Please consider walking with Team Ruden and donating.
