is fundraising to honor:
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. This day always reminds me of my dad. He loved being outside and active, and looked forward to the longest day of the year. The sun made him happy, the sun makes me happy, and makes me think of him. To honor his memory, I have chosen to run the LA Marathon! My dad ran all the time when I was growing up.
I personally have been very impacted by this disease. My dad (pictured above) died of Alzheimer's October 2012, my Aunt Carole (on the right) passed in April of 2020 with Alzheimer's, and my Aunt Judy also had this terrible disease.
Today, an estimated 50 million people worldwide are living with Alzheimer's or other dementias, including more than 6 million Americans. In the United States alone, more than 11 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!
