STEVENS POINT – The UW-Stevens Point Women’s Volleyball Team is hosting its fifth annual Attacking Alzheimer’s night during the annual Alumni Day.
The event will include t-shirt and hat sales, treats, and the opportunity to make donations. All proceeds will go towards the Alzheimer’s Association Greater Wisconsin Chapter, which help the Association to provide critical care and support services for the 110,000 people in Wisconsin living with Alzheimer’s and their 194,000 family caregivers. The funds also enable the Alzheimer’s Association’s public policy efforts and advance critical research towards finding a cure.
Attacking Alzheimer’s is held in honor of previous head coach Abbey Sutherland’s mother, Rhonda Sutherland, who was diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s in 2013. Lyndsay Kooi, head coach at UW-Stevens point is carrying on the annual match. Of the disease and event, Coach Sutherland’s father, Rob Sutherland, says “We must get a handle on this awful disease for our own sake and for our children”. The goal this year is to surpass the $7,000 in funds raised last year.
