RTP Walk to End Alzheimer’s 2020 Fund
Alzheimer’s disease is the sixth-leading cause of death in the North Carolina and an 161% increase in deaths since 2000. There are approximately 5 million Americans living with the disease and one in three seniors dies with Alzheimer’s or another dementia. Between 2000 and 2018, deaths from Alzheimer’s has increased 146%. In terms of caregiving, there are more than 16 million caregivers of people living with Alzheimer’s and other dementias in the United States. The caregivers provide $18.6 billion hours of unpaid care, a contribution to the nation valued at more than $244 billion. In 2020, Alzheimer’s disease will cost the United States $305 billion. This number is projected to rise to more than $1.1 trillion in 2050. Event The world may look a little different right now, but one thing hasn’t changed: our commitment to ending Alzheimer’s. This year, Walk to End Alzheimer’s is everywhere – on sidewalk, track and trail. Raleigh, NC will walk on Saturday, October 10, 2020. Your health and safety are our top priorities. We won’t have a large in-person gathering – instead, we invite you to walk in small teams of friends and family while others in your community do the same. Because we are all still walking and fundraising for the same thing: a world without Alzheimer’s and all other dementia. Every dollar you donate will help the Alzheimer’s Association provide care and support to all those facing Alzheimer’s and all other dementia. Together, we can end Alzheimer’s. Please consider supporting Cisco’s efforts with a donation. Thank you for your support! #ASN #WeAreCisco #WalktoEndAlzheimers Have Questions?

Fundraising for Covid-19 Research in memory of Luigi Cirillo (Italy-VMCT)
(The above value already takes into account the Cisco match) follows the text in Italian We have all been affected by the untimely death of our dear former colleague, and friend for many, Luigi. We are bound to him by many years of working together, a chat at the coffee machine, or just some quick jokes exchanged walking in the aisles of the office ... memories that all of us will hold inside and will make us smile when thinking of him. In these months we have learned to stay away from each other, we have accepted the unacceptable, not being able to embrace those who were greeting us forever in one last hug. We have been forced to practice social distancing, but we have not resigned ourselves to losing our humanity, our need to be together and our ability to make ourselves feel present even when physical presence is not possible. Aware of how little is still known about coronavirus, we want to try to make Luigi and his family feel all our affection by proposing a fundraising campaign in favor of the Umberto Veronesi Foundation, to finance a research project on COVID-19. For details on the purpose of the collection you can refer to the Foundation website: https://www.fondazioneveronesi.it/ricerca/aree-di-ricerca If you want to make a contribution in this great battle, for and together with Luigi, you can make a donation here. Cisco will automatically double the amount donated by employees. Non-Cisco employees will also be able to donate can make the donation using this link https://www.fondazioneveronesi.it/donazioni/dona-ora and specifying “Covid-19 Research - in memory of Luigi Cirillo” with email to donazioni@fondazioneveronesi.it . At the end of August 2020 we will make a report with the names of those who participated in this fundraising campaign, completed by the photos we have of Luigi, and we will deliver it to his family. In thanking you, we want to hold you all in a big hug by stealing a slogan coined for this period: #DISTANTBUTNEAR ***** ***** Tutti noi siamo stati colpiti dalla prematura scomparsa del nostro caro ex-collega, per molti amico, Luigi. A lui ci legano molti anni di lavoro condiviso, quattro chiacchiere alla macchinetta del caffe, due battute scambiate velocemente quando ci si incrociava… ricordi che tutti noi ci porteremo dentro e ci faranno sorridere quando penseremo a lui. ***** In questi mesi abbiamo imparato a stare lontani gli uni dagli altri, abbiamo accettato l’inaccettabile, non potendo stringere in un ultimo abbraccio chi ci stava salutando per sempre. Siamo stati costretti a praticare il distanziamento sociale, ma non ci siamo rassegnati a perdere la nostra umanità, il nostro bisogno di stare insieme e la nostra capacità di farci sentire presenti anche quando la presenza fisica non è possibile. ***** Consapevoli di quanto poco ancora si conosca del coronavirus, vogliamo allora provare a fare sentire a Luigi tutto il nostro affetto proponendo una raccolta fondi a favore della Fondazione Umberto Veronesi per finanziare un progetto di ricerca sul COVID-19. Per i dettagli sulla finalità della raccolta puoi riferirti al sito della Fondazione: https://www.fondazioneveronesi.it/ricerca/aree-di-ricerca . ***** Se vuoi dare un contributo in questa grande battaglia, per e insieme a Luigi, puoi fare una donazione qui. Cisco raddoppierà automaticamente la cifra donata dai dipendenti. Le persone non dipendenti Cisco potranno donare andando al sito della fondazione: https://www.fondazioneveronesi.it/donazioni/dona-ora specificando “Ricerca Covid-19 - in memoria di Luigi Cirillo” con email a donazioni@fondazioneveronesi.it . A fine agosto faremo un resoconto con i nomi di chi ha aderito, completato dalle foto che abbiamo di Luigi e le consegneremo ai familiari. Nel ringraziarvi, vogliamo stringervi tutti in un grande abbraccio rubando uno slogan coniato per questo periodo: #Lontanimavicini

Tina Swallow - LLS 2020 Man & Women of the Year Campaign Fund
Calling on our Cisco family to help support an amazing opportunity to assist more than one million Americans living with blood cancers. The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) has nominated our own, Tina Swallow as a candidate in the “Man & Woman of the Year” fundraising campaign. We have a small team working to raise as much money as possible in a 10-week period for LLS. We have from May 7, 2020 - July 18, 2020, to meet our goals! Every dollar raised counts as one vote and the candidate who gets the most votes (raises the most money) is named the Man or Woman of the Year. This year, the National Capital Area (NCA) chapter of LLS selected 26 candidates to reach its fundraising goal of $3.5 million. I know these are unprecedented times and COVID-19 is changing the world at a rapid pace. Times are hard, there are fears and a lot of unknowns. In these challenging times, there is one thing we do know – Every 3 minutes someone is diagnosed with blood cancer and the COVID-19 crisis does nothing to change that fact. In addition to a grueling battle against cancer, patients are now faced with the threat of a virus that could put them at further risk, as well as the possibility of delays in treatment, as hospitals face maximum capacity. This campaign is very personal to Tina. Her oldest son Beau was diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer at age 12 and was given a 5-7% chance of surviving past treatment. After 23 rounds of chemo, an 8-hour surgery and 6-weeks of radiation, Beau found the strength to persevere. Visit www.bridgetoacure.com to read more about her story.
