Featured Fundraiser: No One Walks Alone
In 2016, Doug B. spent more than four months hiking the Appalachian Trail from Georgia to Maine in honor of those facing Alzheimer’s disease. He carried with him the names of mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, friends and loved ones that have been touched by Alzheimer’s. He turned his hike into a fundraiser for The Longest Day, raising over $33,000 to help fund the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association. Thank you, Doug!
