Walk to End Alzheimer's - Friend of Jimmy Conway Group

Dear Friends of Jimmy Conway:
Those of us who participated in last year’s ‘Walk to End Alzheimer’s’ here in Portland, committed to making it into an even bigger event this year to show our respect for Jimmy and support for the Alzheimer’s Association - Oregon Chapter who do such great work to help those affected by this insidious disease. 

Consequently, we’d like you to consider either walking in the event (Sunday, Sep 23rd, 2012) at the Portland International Raceway (PIR) and/or making a donation in Jimmy’s name. I have registered a team in Jimmy and Noeleen’s honor and it’s called…Friends of Jimmy Conway. So, if you are up to supporting the event and the Association please visit the registration page at the link provided below. Once there you can use the ‘Join Us, Join a team’ button and enter ‘Friends of Jimmy Conway’. From there you will be instructed how to join the team and/or make a donation. Obviously, we understand that many of you may not be able to be there in person but we do hope you will consider a donation in Jimmy’s name.

Our group will be led by Jimmy & Noeleen, members of the Conway family, former Portland Timbers mascot ‘Timber Jim’ (Jim Serrill) and Tim Birr the bagpiper who so kindly led our group last year. We are attempting to get as many local soccer enthusiasts to join us to show our support and respect for Jimmy and the Alzheimer’s Association.  

I will be providing periodic updates on Jimmy’s Facebook group page (Fans of Jimmy Conway). Here is the link:

Thanks, once again, for your consideration. Let’s make Jimmy and Noeleen proud and let’s raise as much money as we possibly can to help fight this disease.

As mentioned in earlier posts, Jimmy Conway and the early Portland Timbers' deserve our support- in many ways- for the gifts they gave this community.  Truth.
