In September, Green Bay Packers safety Adrian Amos, #31, made a pledge to donate $1,000 for every tackle he made during the 2020 football season to fight Alzheimer’s disease. To date, Amos has already personally raised over $50,000 for the Alzheimer’s Association Wisconsin Chapter.
Today, he kicks off an additional December fundraiser asking Wisconsinites to donate $31 to receive a green and gold #ENDALZ t-shirt.
Amos’s grandmother, Geraldine Thompson, lost a lengthy battle with Alzheimer’s disease on June 18, 2020. She was a constant presence in the lives of her seven children, 15 grandchildren, and a host of great grandchildren.
“Alzheimer’s disease is a cause that is very dear to me. After watching my grandmother battle with the disease, I truly understand the impact it has on families,” Amos said.
Amos is encouraging Wisconsinites to join his team to fight Alzheimer’s. To donate, visit http://act.alz.org/goto/TEAMADRIANAMOS
