Today’s hero: Annemiek Storm
Leave a comment below to let us know about the everyday heroes in your life! In honor of Alzheimer’s Action Day on September 21, we are highlighting 21 Everyday Heroes. Today, meet Annemiek Storm, our 11th everyday hero. As of today, Annemiek is the top fundraiser for Walk to End Alzheimer’s in Sacramento. She’s already raised more than $10,000 and hoping to get to her goal of $13,000 by the event on October 1 at the State Capitol. As a long term care insurance agent, Annemiek sees families who are coping with Alzheimer’s every day. She knows that nearly 50 percent of long term care insurance claims are dementia related (and most of those Alzheimer’s) and they are also on average the longest lasting claims. Visit Annemiek’s donation page here: Donation Page of Annemiek Storm and learn more about how you can raise awareness of Alzheimer’s disease at www.alz.org/wam.
It’s volunteers who are passionate like Annemiek that make me hopeful that we will find a cure! The end of Alzheimer’s starts with Annemiek, with you, and with me. THANK YOU
