is participating to honor:
her mother and aunt
On June 21st, I will be participating for the first time in the Alzheimer’s Association “The Longest Day” fundraising event. From sunrise to sunset, on the longest day of the year, teams and individuals across the globe will be participating in various activities to fundraise and honor those living with this disease. The duration of the event symbolizes the challenging journey of those living with Alzheimer’s as well as their caregivers.
My Aunt Annie and my mother, Marilyn, were both diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in their early 70's. My Aunt Annie battled this debilitating disease and lost her fight in June of last year. My mother has battled this disease for nine years and now lives in a long-term nursing care facility. Alzheimer's has significantly impacted our entire family.
On June 21st, I will be cycling 100 miles (from Grand Haven to South Haven and back) in honor of these brave women and for all of those facing the disease. Today, over 35 million people across the world are living with Alzheimer’s.
