Blondes vs. Brunettes

Alzheimer's Association Blondes vs. Brunettes is a volunteer event driven by young women that brings the passion and spirit of young community leaders together to support the Alzheimer’s Association.  The event is an organized flag football game in which the two participating teams are divided based on the age-old rivalry between blondes and brunettes (Note: Redheads are “free agents,” permitted to play for the team of their choice).  Coaches, announcers, cheerleaders, and other volunteers are also key roles of the BvB game. Funds raised at Blondes vs. Brunettes events benefit the care, support, advocacy and research efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association. Game day is August 22nd at the San Francisco Golden Gate Rugby Club with practices beginning in April.

For more information view the event website at http://act.alz.org/BvBSF15 or contact Lacey Todd at ltodd@alz.org.

The Longest Day

No matter where you are, you can join or organize a team to raise funds and awareness for Alzheimer's care, support and research. Held on the longest day of the year (June 21), this event honors the patience, strength, and endurance of caregivers and those living with Alzheimer's- but it's also about a challenge.  On The Longest Day, do something you love - or try something new - to advance the cause!  A physical challenge of hiking, biking, running, swimming, etc. is the perfect way to use your endurance to make a difference. For people facing Alzheimer's disease, this challenge is every day. For you, it's just one.
