"I founded this club on the principles of providing awareness to the Alzheimers disease and to provide support for the efforts of the Alzheimer's Association. Having been personally a part of the volunteer efforts for the Alzheimers Association and specifically for the Walk, I know the sacrifice of time and effort our healthcare workers and volunteers have to put in, each year for this one very special day.
The Healthcare workers and volunteers deserve to be celebrated for their continued selfless efforts that have led to increased funding in research and awareness for this terrible disease and as a club and organization, their effort has been the guiding principle of our foundation.
Competing for a UPSL championship is important as it reflects our efforts as a team on the pitch, but this game, on this special day, is what matters most. This game stands for the very heart of our existence."
