THD raises funds for The Longest Day
On June 21st, THD employees walked, biked and ran in order to raise money for the Alzheimer’s Association.
The sunrise to sundown fundraising event – known as The Longest Day – asks participants to push their physical limits as they raise funds to support Alzheimer’s care, support, and research. It is the second year that THD has fielded a team to participate in the event.
Teams are asked to keep at least one member active during daylight hours while they fundraise on behalf of the mission of Alzheimer’s Association. It is suggested that each participant raise a minimum of $100 an hour in motion.
THD’s team, “The Hard Day’s Night,” included more than 20 participants, who participated in activities that ranged from sunrise yoga to basketball, Pilates, walking, running, and biking.
Said team organizer, Jill Rezek, “It’s a great event because not only are we raising money to support a worthwhile mission, we get to share the experience with co-workers. It was fun to see my team work up a sweat in order to reach our goal!”
THD participants raised more than $4,300 for the cause. Across the country, 730 teams took part in The Longest Day, raising approximately $1,152,560 for the Alzheimer’s Association.
