Stand with AGE

AGE of Central Texas

For the sixth year in a row I am raising money for a cause dear to my heart: AGE of Central Texas during the Amplify Austin 24-hour Challenge. This is my 6th year on the AGE Board - they do wonderful work. I hope you will consider giving.

Stand with AGE

At AGE of Central Texas, falls prevention is a key component of maintaining the health and well-being of the Central Texas senior community. One in three Americans aged 65+ falls each year, and falls are the leading cause of death and injuries among older adults.

So this year, we are asking you "Stand with AGE" and help us prevent falls during Amplify Austin! Donations will be matched by the St. David's Foundation and various donors during specific power hours.

AGE cares for Caregivers! They provide a free resource center that can answer any question a caregiver might have about helping their loved one. They provide free medical equipment through their HELP closet. They have two Adult Day Health Care facilities that operate five-days-a-week. They conduct weekly Early Memory Loss meetings in five locations for people with early signs of dementia or Alzheimer's. If you or someone you know is taking care of a elderly loved-one, please tell them about AGE!

Here's how it works. Steve and I are matching all donations through this page up to $250. You can go in right now and "schedule" your donation to hit during Amplify - thus making the most of those matching dollars!

Thank you for supporting my fundraising campaign, Melissa Takamatsu
