Bankers Life and Casualty Company Increases Support of Alzheimer's Association to More Than $329,000
Date:7/29/2009

CHICAGO, July 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Through its annual street corner fundraiser and a separate corporate donation, Bankers Life and Casualty Company has increased its support to the Alzheimer's Association in 2009 to more than $329,000.

Bankers' annual Forget Me Not Days(R) event increased its donations over last year by 13%, to just over $229,000 for the Alzheimer's Association. In addition, Bankers - the national life and health insurer focusing on the retirement market - recognized the Association with a $100,000 donation to aid in the support of the Association's mission.

"The Alzheimer's Association is doing remarkable work to advance research and provide patient and caregiver assistance, and we're proud to support their agenda," said Scott Perry, president of Bankers. "Alzheimer's has a significant impact on our customers, and the growth of our Forget Me Not Days event shows our employees and agents across the country are committed to doing what it takes to fight this disease and give something back to our customers and our communities."

In its seventh record-breaking year, Forget Me Not Days saw more than 1,000 Bankers volunteers collect donations at locations in 116 U.S. cities on May 15 and 16. Since the fundraiser's start in 2003, Bankers has supported the Association with more than $1.7 million for care, education and research programs.

"The Alzheimer's Association appreciates Bankers efforts to raise awareness and funds for a disease that impacts as many as 5.3 million Americans," said Angela Geiger, Chief Strategy Officer for the Alzheimer's Association. "Because the baby boomer generation is aging and the number of people with Alzheimer's continues to increase dramatically, the importance of funding care, support and research for Alzheimer's disease is critical."
