"Longest Day" golf marathon
to raise money for Association

Event to take place June 20 at Coeur d'Alene Golf Club

Psychologist and author Dr. Heidi Hanna is organizing a "Marathon of Golf Day" in recogniation of The Longest Day, a sunrise-to-sunset relay event to raise funds to fuel the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association.

Marathon of Golf Day will take place Wednesday, June 20, at Coeur d’Alene Golf Club, 2321 W. Fairway Drive, Coeur d’Alene, Idaho.

This event is about love, patience, strength and endurance, but it's also about a challenge. On June 20, teams around the country will challenge themselves to endurance activities, such as biking, running or walking. To mix it up a bit, Dr. Hanna is organizing a marathon golf day, with several people playing for a full 12 hours!

She is currently looking for corporate sponsors and additional golfers who would like to commit to raising money for the Alzheimer’s Association. For additional information or to participate with Heidi in this marathon of golf event, contact Jacquelyn Mack (321) 299-3112 or email Jacquelyn@synergyprograms.com.

Please note: Dr. Hanna will also be hosting golf events in the month of September, Alzheimer's Awareness Month, and can provide content for publications looking to communicate to their readers the message of brain health and mental fitness leading up to this event (multiple dates in multiple locations during the month of September).

Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive brain disorder that gradually destroys a person’s memory and ability to learn, reason, make judgments, communicate and carry out daily activities. Currently, more than 5 million Americans suffer from the disease. Until Alzheimer’s disease is just a memory, the Alzheimer’s Association Inland Northwest Chapter will continue to provide help and hope. The mission of the Alzheimer’s Association Inland Northwest Chapter is to enhance care and support for individuals, their families and caregivers, and to eliminate Alzheimer’s disease through the advancement of research.

Funds raised will support programs and services including support groups and classes for individuals and families, education programs for professional caregivers, one-on-one family care consultations, public advocacy for better care and research into better treatments and a cure, and a 24/7 telephone Information Helpline. To receive more information about Alzheimer’s disease or the Alzheimer’s Association Inland Northwest Chapter’s programs and services, please contact the Association at (509) 473-3390 or visit www.alz.org/inlandnorthwest.
