Fight back against Alzheimer’s

To the Editor:

Ask yourself, for just one day, can I match the passion and dedication of Alzheimer’s caregivers and those with the disease? For them, it’s every day. For us, just one–- June 20, 2012, the longest day of the year.

The Longest Day™ is a sunrise-to-sunset relay event to raise funds for the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association. This event is about love, patience, strength and endurance, but it’s also about a challenge. On June 20, 2012, my teammates and I will test our physical limits by completing approximately 16 hours of endurance activities, such as biking, running or walking — even a motorcycle rally. That doesn’t mean the individual has to do the entire 16 hours by themselves, but rather that the team be in motion for 16 hours.

Personally, my endurance event will be completing a marathan of Beachbody workouts from 8 a.m.-8 p.m. in Las Vegas which will include P90X™ Certification training, Insanity™, and Tai Cheng™. Your event can be whatever is meaningful to you, for as long as you want to do it.

To join or sponsor my team, please visit http:/ or call me at 828.506.4726.

Please join my team as we exercise from 6 a.m. - 10 p.m. on June 20, 2012. Or, make a donation today and show your support for the millions of people around the world living with Alzheimer’s, including more than 5 million Americans. Give to honor nearly 15 million American caregivers, who generously dedicate themselves to those with Alzheimer’s and dementia. All proceeds go to The Alzheimer’s Association.

Thank you in advance for your generosity! Together we can send a message - You are not alone. We’re in it until Alzheimer’s is finished.

Inspire yourself, then others.
