The longest day of the year is June 20th—the day with the most sunshine. On June 18th, Shelby County will be showing awareness for Alzheimer’s by having the Longest Day Walk for Shelby County. Along with awareness, the purpose of the walk is to raise money for care, support, and research for Alzheimer’s. This day is dedicated to standing up to the darkness of Alzheimer’s. Nearly everyone knows a family member, friend, or even a friend of a friend who has been affected by Alzheimer’s.
This walk will take place at the Kennedy Park Shelter House. Registration will begin at 9am and the walk will begin at 9:30am. If it rains the walk will take place at the Parks and Rec Center inside the gym. Hopefully you all can go to raise awareness towards the cause! There will be venders there and if you want to donate towards the cause you can go to the direct link: http://act.alz.org/goto/thelongestwalkofshelbycounty and use the hashtag #ENDALZ to show awareness!
