is fundraising to honor:
all those facing Alzheimer's
supporting the fight to end Alzheimer's
The Longest Day is the day of the year with the most light — the summer solstice. And this year, Birmingham Boulders is joining the fight to end Alzheimer's on June 22nd at our Community Appreciation Night at Birmingham Boulders from 5-10pm! We are participating in The Longest Day, a fundraising event to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.
Climbing is more than just a sport-it is a community centered around support. Very much like the caregivers who tirelessly support their loved ones fighting this disease, climbers support their partners as they journey up a wall. In addition, due to the intense focus on intricate movements and your breath, studies have shown a great deal of positive mental health benefits that can come from climbing.
Today, an estimated 50 million people worldwide are living with Alzheimer's or other dementias, including more than 5 million Americans. In the United States alone, 16 million friends and family members are providing their care. We must take action now, or these numbers will continue to rise.
Stand up to the darkness of Alzheimer’s and make a donation today to help the Alzheimer's Association support all those facing the disease. Thank you!
