WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University softball team is using their offseason to help a special cause and get involved in the community. The team is in the process of raising money to benefit Alzheimer’s disease care, support, and research. They will be participating together this Saturday, Oct. 27 in the annual Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s, a three-mile walk beginning at 9:30 a.m. on the national mall.

Spearheading the effort is sophomore pitcher Lauren O’Leary (La Canada, Calif./La Canada), who has seen the disease affect her family and personally touch her life.

“We are all very excited about this opportunity to help raise money for a cure for Alzheimer’s,” said O’Leary. “I feel that it is important as student-athletes at Georgetown to be involved in and give back to our community. Participating in this walk is a great opportunity for us to make a difference in people’s lives and we can’t wait to take part in this event.”

The Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s is the nation’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research. Held annually in more than 600 communities nationwide, this inspiring event calls on participants of all ages and abilities. They aim to one day end Alzheimer’s disease, the nation’s sixth-leading cause of death.

The Alzheimer’s Association’s mission is “To eliminate Alzheimer’s disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhanced support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health.”
