Jordan Balkema Elder Law Center, Metron of Big Rapids and Altercare of Big Rapids will team up and put their passion to work on June 21, 2017 by hosting an event at Hemlock Park as part of The Longest Day, benefiting the Alzheimer's Association.
The Longest Day is a day the entire community can come together and show love and support for those affected by Alzheimer's disease and other dementias. Every day feels like the longest day for those struggling with Alzheimer's disease and their caregivers, so everyone is encouraged to join the fight for just one day.
On June 21, this local team made up of community members, donors and businesses will be called the ALZ SUPER HEROES. Events throughout the day will include walking on the Riverwalk, a bicycle ride up to Paris for a sweet treat and back, Tai Chi with Mary Loesch plus a cookout in the evening and entertainment.
