Keri Pape's Fundraising Page
I am honored to be a part of the Legacy Council to raise money for Alzheimer's Research, a cause that has deeply touched my family.
I have chosen to fundraise for Alzheimer’s disease to promote awareness of the sixth leading cause of death in the United States and to promote research for a cure (for which there currently is none). Alzheimer’s disease has had a tremendous effect on my family - my grandmother (a UT grad) suffered from Alzheimer’s. To see a woman I admired and respected for her sharp business mind suddenly become robbed of the ability to complete mundane tasks was hard to witness. I am also honored to participate on behalf of Darrell Royal, a great man that my father knew when he played baseball for the University of Texas. It is my hope that organizations such as this will continue to raise funds and awareness on behalf of Alzheimer’s disease and find a cure.
