Off The Leash will be participating in 'The Longest Day' to give many wags and slobbery kisses for all those affected by Alzheimer’s disease. Team Petey's ALZclimbers will be joining others around the world and doing what we love to honor people living with Alzheimer's, their caregivers, and those lost to the disease, while raising funds and awareness to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association.
Alzheimer's affects many & is a cause that is near and dear to our hearts. Emily's father has been living with early onset Alzheimer's for over 10 years. He is a former Maritime Attorney and a lover of laughter, nature, animals, the ocean and all sorts of boats. His 69th birthday is on July 1st, and we will hiking to celebrate him and all those living with Alzheimer's. Would love for you, your furry friend and family to join us!
Together, we can show those facing Alzheimer's disease they are not alone. Please make a donation to help the Alzheimer's Association advance research toward the first survivor of Alzheimer’s and provide care and support to those facing the disease today.
