Coming off our most successful fundraising year ever, the Junior Committee (JC) voted at our annual allocations meeting to dedicate a portion of our revenues to the creation of a part-time JC Assistant at the NYC Chapter. Over the last several years, the JC has steadily increased our fundraising capability and membership, and we are proud to report that we have outgrown our own capacities.

We are thrilled to have this new support as we continue to expand our existing programs and events, like the annual spring gala, which has the potential to double in size — and revenue — as well as develop new ones, like a fundraising program in conjunction with the ING New York City Marathon, fi lm screenings, and lectures to enhance awareness and raise additional funds. This new member of the NYC Chapter will also assist with the Community Health Fairs program.

The JC decided to maintain the top leadership of the Executive Committee, President Meghann McKale and Vice President Christina Cohen. However, Kim Rossi has resigned as Secretary, though she will remain as the Community Service Chair, and long time JC member Tricia Amy will fi ll the position. Recent member Jeffrey LeBlanc has volunteered to step in as Treasurer.

Jeff has not only thrown himself into the duties of Treasurer, but on July 19, he participated in his fi rst 100-mile ultramarathon, the classic “Vermont 100” — and raised nearly $20,000 for the Alzheimer’s Association!

And even though not all of the JC are such dedicated athletes, we turned out in record numbers for our 4th annual Alzheimer’s Awareness Day at Shea to cheer New York’s own boys of summer — our purple MOVE t-shirts from Memory Walk 2007 were on full display. But fall is around the corner, and we have already begun planning for Memory Walk 2008 (visit memorywalk to join our team) and for our 3rd annual Hudson Hullabaloo on September 23rd — information is available at

The Junior Committee meets on the second Tuesday of each month at 6:45 p.m. at the NYC Chapter office in Manhattan. All are welcome to attend. If you are interested in joining or for more information, visit or e-mail
