Team Silver Fox Needs Your Support!

On November 9th Team Silver Fox will be walking in the Walk to End Alzheimer's in Philadelphia in honor of our Founder and CEO, Jim Witmer. 


Jim was diagnosed with Early Onset Alzheimer's Disease at only 57 years old, just three years ago. Alzheimer's is no longer just an "old persons disease", it is affecting those younger and younger all the time. Currently, more than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer's, and sadly, that number is expected to grow to 16 million by 2050. Something needs to be done. 

In January of 2013, Jim, with the rest of his family by his side announced to the company about his diagnosis. It was a moment of sadness, but of course, our CEO was cracking jokes and providing comedic relief in the midst of sharing his story. He's always been great about lightening the mood in a tough moment.

Jim leads a life of bravery, has always charged forward with new ideas, creating the businesses you all know and love today, and has provided his community with safety by volunteering and elevating through the ranks over the years. He's served as an Elder of his church, been awarded the Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of the Year award for the Philadelphia Region, was (and is!) a solid husband, and raised 4 great children over the years. He is the beloved Pop Pop to 7 grandchildren now.


Over the past few years, things have definitely changed. But one thing remains---the Witmer Family is still praying for, and working towards seeing a cure to End Alzheimer's.

Alzheimer's is an extremely underfunded disease, but it affects SO many. It's the 6th leading cause of death in the United States.

Our team, Team Silver Fox, needs your support! 

Our Team is dedicated to raising funds for Alzheimer's research, care and support, and we need your help. Consider donating here. If you are local, would you walk with us?

May God bless you as you walk this walk and may God heal you of this disease. I know what it is like to suffer a disease and even family members don't know what to do so they just move on with their own lives. Be blessed and be healed amen

I think a lot of people are familiar with the problem of doing homework. To cope with such a huge number of academic assignments alone is simply not possible. I made a deliberate decision - to turn to teachers, writers, anyone-anyone who could help me in any way with my work. Of course, I could have asked my classmates for help, but I wanted work from professionals. The site where I was able to find them was grademiners reviews. Despite all my doubts, I still made up my mind and got a great job. I recommend it!

Thanks for sharing such informative blog. Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) project essentially examines how well one understands the field of nursing practice and one’s ability to solve a real world public health problem. Owing to the fact that working on this type of project can be somehow difficult, some scholars opt to order DNP capstone project writing help.

After graduation 11, I had to go to the School of Journalism online with the English exam. I couldn't believe it as much as I wanted. Finally I decided to go online to find a website where I pay someone to take my test. I'm glad I paid this site a modest sum of money. Since I could visit the site whenever I wanted, because the test results were fantastic. Thank you! Thank you. Thank you! We suggest this website very much.
