Friends and Family,
It’s that time of year again. On Friday evening October 27th, UW-Green Bay Volleyball will be hosting their annual Attacking Alzheimer’s Match. This year, in memory of the remarkable life of Rhonda Joy Sutherland.
As you all know, Rhonda passed away in December 2022. I always told myself that when Rhonda died, I’d be done with Alzheimer’s and all that came with it. However, the Alzheimer’s Association was, and continues to be, a great help to me. I addition to that, very real progress is now being made to slow down the disease’s progression.
Now isn’t the time to take our foot off of the accelerator. It’s the time to push ahead and continue funding research and helping those in need.
The match is being held at 6:00 PM at the Kress Events Center on the UWGB campus. The ladies are hosting Robert Morris University in what promises to be an exciting match. Prior to the match, beginning at 4:30, there will be a social gathering in the Phoenix Club, adjacent to the arena. If you’re available that evening, both the Phoenix and the Alzheimer’s Association would love your support.
There were many ups and many downs during Rhonda’s journey, but we do know that Rhonda would have wanted our family to use this platform to help find a cure and help others cope with this dreadful disease. If you’d like, the Alzheimer’s Association will be accepting donations at the door, or a check can be mailed to me (please make checks out to the Alzheimer’s Association). Donations can also be made by accessing the following link: act.alz.org/goto/UWGBVolleyball
We have been truly blessed to have such wonderful friends and family. THANK YOU!! Your generosity and love mean more than you’ll ever know. For the sake of our children and grandchildren, we must find a cure. Please feel free to forward this message to anyone you think may be interested.
