Greater Kentucky & Southern Indiana Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association
Currently, four million Americans are diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease and that number is expected to surge as 76 million baby boomers reach the age of greatest risk in 2011.
NARFE made its first pledge to the
association in 1986 to create a research endowment of $500,000, and fulfilled
that commitment in 1988. The organization then pledged another $500,000,
fundraising for which was completed in 1991. Having raised $1million, NARFE
became a charter member of the Alzheimer's Association's Zenith Fellows,
"NARFE is proud to have reached the $5 million goal two years early," said Charles L. Fallis, NARFE national president. "Raising money for Alzheimer's is a 'labor of love' for our members. So many of them have a spouse, relative or good friend impacted by this horrible disease that, helping to find a cure is a natural response. Thanks to thousands of NARFE members, we get closer to the goal of finding a cure each day."
NARFE contributions have supported 24 research projects since 1988, including studies on brain imaging, and the role genetics and vascular factors may play in the onset of Alzheimer's disease.
The National Association of Retired Federal Employees (NARFE) is the only association dedicated to protecting the earned retirement benefits of federal employees, retirees and their survivors. Founded by 14 federal workers in 1921, NARFE has become an effective and highly respected legislative voice for federal workers and retirees. Membership has grown to nearly 400,000 federal, District of Columbia, and postal employees, retirees, spouses, and survivors united to preserve the economic security and well-being of federal employees on the job and in retirement.
