Smif-N-WessunEarlier this year, Duck Down Records co-founder Dru Ha lost his father to a 10-year battle with Alzheimer's.

In his father's honor, the label owner announced that he will be running the ING New York City Marathon in early November in an effort to raise donations and awareness about the horrific disease that affects over 5 million people in the United States alone.

To date, Dru Ha has raised over $10,000 in donations.

Now, artists on his record label have dedicated their time to chip in as well.

Buckshot, Smif-N-Wessun, Promise & Double-O (of Kidz In The Hall) created an original song, "Run To Remember," in recognition of Dru Ha running the NYC Marathon. Double-O produced the track, while the rapper's recorded their verses at Rubber Tracks in Brooklyn, NY.

The track dropped on iTunes on Thursday (October 20), and is selling for just $0.99. However, if you purchase the track, it's going to a good cause. Proceeds from the sales will be donated to the Alzheimer's Research foundation.

Listen to the song below, and head to iTunes.com to get your copy.

Additionally, Duck Down Music has also created a custom "Run to Remember" Dri-Fit Shirt, available for purchase as well, with proceeds of the sales also being donated to the Alzheimer's Research Foundation.

The tee is made of 100% polyester moisture management, anti-microbial performance fabric, and is perfect for running or working out at the gym. It features the original Duck Down running man logo with purple print, which represents the official colors of the Alzheimer's organization. Get the tee at DuckDown.com.
