This past weekend, (June 25th-26th), the Jake Plummer Foundation hosted it's successful annual Celebrity Bowl-O-Rama benefiting local children's hospitals, the Family Tree and Alzheimer's patients/caregivers.
"Growing up, I always enjoyed helping other people, I wanted to help those less fortunate than others. Doing these fundraisers is a good way to have fun and raise money." Plummer said. When asked what motivated him to help others, Plummer stated, "Seeing the children smile."
"Alzheimer's disease can have an overwhelming impact on a family," said Plummer. Jake Plummer experienced this first hand, when his grandfather had been diagnosed with Alzheimer's. Approximately 4.5 million Americans have this disease. Alzheimer's disease is one of several disorders that cause the gradual loss of brain cells that control memory and thinking, which could lead to death. With help from volunteers, fundraising and research we can learn more about the disease and effective treatments.
Domestic violence, child abuse, homelessness and other family crises are the main focuses that Family Tree provides services for families in those specific situations. Last year, Family Tree provided services to more than 24, 000 people. The mission of Family Tree is to help people be safe, strong and self-reliant through their programs and services.
