“Days of Our Lives” Star Martha Madison Raises FTD Awareness at Dallas Marathon



A team of 20 taking part in the BMW Dallas Marathon (December 7-9) will run to raise awareness of young-onset dementia and support The Association for Frontotemporal Degeneration, the country’s leading nonprofit focused on FTD.

Runners include Texas native and Days of Our Lives star Martha Madison, a longtime AFTD supporter. Ms. Madison and her sisters Alison Popek and Bo Yates are raising vital funds and running in honor of their mother, Barbara Baggs, who has lived with FTD for more than 15 years.

“I decided to train for the last six months and run in honor of those who cannot,” says Madison. “I will carry my Mom in my mind and heart the entire way.”
