The Longest Day

Are you a passionate endurance athlete?

The National Capital Area Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association is looking for athletes to raise awareness and fundraise of this devastating disease. We are looking for athletes who want to ADD MEANING TO YOUR MILES. For this campaign the fundraising minimum is $20, includes a T-shirt. We would love to cheer you on for an upcoming Ironman, Marathon, Triathlon or 5K. We are also considering rejoining the Marine Corps Marathon Charity program. This would vary from the first option and include a higher fundraising minimum, but only slightly We'd love to hear from you if you are interested. Currently we are recruiting runners who have already registered for the Marine Corps weekend. We'll be organizing local training runs and socials and officially kicking off September 1st.

What's good for your heart is good for your brain. Physical activity is crucial to overall health. So while you are challenging yourself physically and mentally to complete some amazing races, please consider adding the charity component and honoring a loved one, the 6.2 million Americans currently living with the disease or the more than 11 million Americans who serve as unpaid caregivers. Your next race could make a huge IMPACT on their lives.

Together, we will raise funds and awareness for the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association. Please join us today! Learn more at www.alz.org/tldrunning or email/call Carrie! cemyatt@alz.org or 703-766-9031
