My Story

On Sunday June 20, I’m going to run 6.2 miles in memory of my aunt Eleanor and to honor the 6.2 million Americans living with Alzheimer’s or another dementia. I’m participating in The Longest Day, a fundraising event to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association. My hope is to raise $1,600 by doing this run. I need your support to do that.

We lost Eleanor last July, when the isolation during the pandemic caused her dementia symptoms to increase dramatically. An estimated 6.2 million Americans age 65 and older are living with Alzheimer's dementia. And one in nine people age 65 and older has the disease. There is currently no known way to prevent, stop or even slow it and it's the sixth largest cause of death in the United States. If breakthroughs for treatment are not found
, the number of people with this disease will double in the next 25 years.

June is Alzheimer’s & Brain Awareness Month and June 20 is the summer solstice - the longest day of the year - so it's the day to focus attention on the long, difficult journey that families are forced to endure with this disease. 

We are here to help those families who need us today while we're working to push for research that will one day end this disease. 
Thanks to all who supported my run last year, and I hope you'll consider to support me on June 20 - The Longest Day.
