is fundraising to honor:
all those facing Alzheimer's
The Longest Day is the day of the year with the most light — the summer solstice. And it's the day I have committed to fight Alzheimer's disease! I’m participating in The Longest Day, a fundraising event to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.
On January 2, 2019 Suzanne Busacker and I became friends on Facebook. We formed a team, RunForGigi, to raise money and awareness for the Alzheimer's Association. In 2019 we raised $21,601.00 by running 27 races and 161.75 miles and asking supporters to donate. This year I will be running as many miles as possible in a 12 hour race in June and asking for pledges per mile. We are asking those supporting our effort to pledge at any time. Your donation is greatly appreciated whether you donate online, or use the mail in option.
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!
