Our Team Story
This is our fourth year to participate in the The Longest Day event hosted by the Alzheimer's Association in celebration of Father's Day and in honor of my beloved father who passed away with Alzheimer's disease. I'm also honoring my family and other families for their love, strength, passion and endurance in caring those facing Alzheimer's disease. We will be scheduling the following activities to help raise awareness and funds for the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.
- Friday, June 29 - a round robin tennis mixed doubles starting at 6:00 pm at the San Diego Tennis & Racquet Club (If you're a guest of a club member, please make sure to request for a guest pass)
- Tuesday, July 3 - a round robin tennis women's doubles starting at 5:30 pm at the San Diego Tennis & Racquet Club (If you're a guest of a club member, please make sure to request for a guest pass)
- Friday, July 13 - a round robin tennis mixed doubles starting at 3:00 pm at the Balboa Tennis Club (open to members & non-members)
All levels are welcome as the goal is to raise awareness and funds, and to have FUN! You may wear any purple color tennis outfit, if you have one but not mandatory. Snacks will be provided and prizes for winners (1st, 2nd & 3rd). The Alzheimer's Association of San Diego, San Diego Site Pros, Inc. and other donors will be giving away prizes for the winners. If you are unable to participate in any of the above dates, you can choose your own activity any time (walking, running, hiking, card game, yoga, etc.) to raise awareness and funds at your preferred location or at the comforts of your own home.
It might interest you to know that a recent study done by the Alzheimer's Association, the number of Americans living with Alzheimer's is growing — and growing fast. An estimated 5.7 million Americans of all ages have Alzheimer's.
An estimated 5.7 million Americans of all ages are living with Alzheimer's dementia in 2018. This number includes an estimated 5.5 million people age 65 and older and approximately 200,000 individuals under age 65 who have younger-onset Alzheimer's.
- One in 10 people age 65 and older (10 percent) has Alzheimer's dementia.
- Almost two-thirds of Americans with Alzheimer's are women.
- Older African-Americans are about twice as likely to have Alzheimer's or other dementias as older whites.
- Hispanics are about one and one-half times as likely to have Alzheimer's or other dementias as older whites.
As the number of older Americans grows rapidly, so too will the numbers of new and existing cases of Alzheimer's. Today, someone in the United States develops Alzheimer's every 65 seconds. By mid-century, someone in the United States will develop the disease every 33 seconds.
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 and provide care and support to those facing the disease today.
