is participating to honor:
his father, Maurie and others
I am participating in The Longest Day fund-raising effort for Alzheimer's Research again this year. To show my love for my father Maurie and all those affected by Alzheimer’s disease we will be gathering on June 21 at the Veterans Home in Minneapolis, and plan to put together jigsaw puzzles from sun up to sundown. Many other groups around the world will also be doing what they enjoy 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.
Today, an estimated 47 million people across the world are living with dementia. This number is set to skyrocket to 75 million by 2030. In the United States alone, more than 15 million caregivers generously dedicate themselves to caring for those with Alzheimer's and dementia. These numbers will only continue to rise unless we take action. Maurie has been receiving great care at the VA for a number of years and they have agreed to be the host site for our event. It will be held in the atrium of building 19 on the VA campus which is located just south of the Ford Avenue bridge between Minnehaha Falls and the Mississippi River. I invite you to join us, do a puzzle if you like, browse the puzzle exchange, purchase new and used puzzles and tour the VA facility. We will have some treats and coffee/lemonade.
If you can't make it but wish to make a monetary donation to the effort as a show of support there is an easy link below (http://act.alz.org/site/TR?fr_id=10935&pg=personal&px=13310131) that should give you that opportunity. I thank you on behalf of Maurie and all others facing this memory robbing disease.
