is fundraising to honor:
all those facing Alzheimer's
to fight Alzheimer's
As many of you know, my mother was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer's Disease so I am participating in The Longest Day for her and everyone else who is, and has been, affected by this devastating disease. The Longest Day is the day of the year with the most light — the summer solstice. The Alzheimer's Association typically hosts a fundraiser on The Longest Day to raise money to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association. Though I will not be completing my Iron Triathlon on the summer solstice, I am still participating in the event because an Iron Triathlon will feel like The Longest Day ever for me!
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!
