My Story

The Longest Day (June 20th, 2021) 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, in memory of my wonderful grandfather, E.W. Adams, who passed away from Alzheimer's in 2006. He was an incredibly kind, intelligent, and generous man who loved to dance with his wife of 60+ years (Betty), sail, and spend time with his grandkids. I'm also participating in memory of my grandmother, who was by his side through the good and the bad, and all caregivers holding the hands of their loved ones as they face the challenges of this disease.

This year, my family and I will be holding a "Boycourt Family Read-a-Thon" on The Longest Day. Since my grandparents were both avid readers (just like the girls), we'll read as many pages as we can between 9am and 5pm. 


If you'd like to donate to our "team," please also make a prediction of how many pages we (as a family) will read by the end of the day and email me (laura.boycourt@gmail.com) with your guess. THE PERSON WITH THE CLOSEST GUESS WILL WIN A GIFT CARD TO HIS/HER FAVORITE BOOKSTORE!


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.


Please help me stand up to the darkness of Alzheimer’s and make a donation today to support the Alzheimer's Association and all those facing the disease. Thank you so much!
