This Sweet Girl Proves It’s Easy to Raise Money for Alzheimer’s ResearchThe Alzheimer's Site
Seven-year-old Magdelyn Epp learned that there is a disease capable of taking a person’s memories away after she saw a story in the Chilliwack Progress about Alzheimer’s patient Ray Klapprat and a group walk in his honor. Young as she was, she knew she had to do something. So, to help raise money for Alzheimer’s research, Maggie decided to open a lemonade stand. Using flyers to spread the word in her neighborhood and draw them to her stand, she managed to raise over $200 in just one day. Ray Klapprat also visited her stand, and now she plans to challenge her friends to do the same thing next year. Maggie may be young, but her experience shows not just how compassionate she is, but that anyone can make a difference in their own way.
