Our Team Story
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.
I completed the seven mile trail run at Lebanon Hills Park on July 10th to move past 100 miles raced this year. Our goal is 150 miles raced this year. By completing the 10k as part of the Mankato Marathon weekend on October 19 will push us over the 150 mile mark. 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!
