New York Community Bank’s Roslyn Savings Bank Division Donates $15,000 for Alzheimer’s Association Long Island’s Memory Walk

Senior Vice President and Retail Banking Regional Executive for New York Community Bank’s Roslyn Savings Bank Division, announced today that, for the third year in a row, the bank will make a donation in the amount of $15,000 to Alzheimer Association Long Island’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s.

Bay Shore, August 7, 2012 — Virginia Belling, Senior Vice President and Retail Banking Regional Executive for New York Community Bank’s Roslyn Savings Bank Division, announced today that, for the third year in a row, the bank will make a donation in the amount of $15,000 to Alzheimer Association Long Island’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s. This year’s fundraising efforts had a head start, thanks to the employees and customers of New York Community Bank. The final donation was rounded up, thanks to a contribution by the bank itself.


“My dad had Alzheimer’s disease, so I know firsthand the challenges Long Island families face caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s disease,” explained Ms. Belling. “On behalf of New York Community Bank, I would like to thank our branch staff for helping to raise money and awareness for this disease.”


“It is our pleasure to be collaborating with New York Community Bank and its Roslyn Savings Bank Division, said Mary Ann Malack-Ragona, Executive Director/Chief Executive Officer, Alzheimer’s Association Long Island. “Our organizations share a common belief: that by supporting the local community, we can make a difference in the lives of fellow Long Islanders. As the first Corporate Presenting Sponsor for the Walk to End Alzheimer’s on Long Island, New York Community Bank is kick-starting what will prove to be an amazing event.”


Currently 5.4 million people in this country have Alzheimer’s disease and more than 200,000 individuals under the age of 65 have a diagnosis of AD. By the middle of this century, it is estimated that approximately 14 to 16 million people will have a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease; 1 out of 8 baby boomers is at risk. The annual cost of Alzheimer’s disease will soar to at least $375 billion, overwhelming our health care system and bankrupting Medicare and Medicaid. Alzheimer’s disease does not happen overnight; it begins to attack the brain of its potential victims 10 to 20 years before the first symptoms appear. To protect today’s baby boomers from the ravages of Alzheimer’s disease, researchers need to find ways to stop the disease’s progress now, while there is still time to prevent the damage.
