Past Events:

KOMU 8 Presented The Roast of Bob Gerding

KOMU partnered with the Alzheimer’s Association Greater Missouri Chapter to present the 11th Annual Roast. This annual fundraising event took place on Thursday, May 28, 2015 in Columbia, Missouri and raised over $63,000 this year. For more information check out our chapter news page! Local accountant Bob Gerding agreed to take the hot seat and was the perfect target given his local, stellar reputation and his circle of influence in business, civic activities and the community-at-large.

The Longest Day

The Longest Day is a team event to raise funds and awareness for the Alzheimer's Association®. Held annually on the summer solstice, the duration of this sunrise-to-sunset event symbolizes the challenging journey of those living with the disease and their caregivers. Teams are encouraged to create their own experience as they fundraise and participate in an activity they love to honor someone facing the disease. Learn more here!

For the 2015 season we had 31 teams in the Greater Missouri Chapter for The Longest Day. Teams participated in activities including bridge, planting flowers, NuStepping, Rocking with Ellen, birthday parties, bake sales, reading and so much more! Find out more about what teams have done in the Ozarks and in Mid-Missouri. There is still time to support these team's efforts!
