A Medfield resident recently climbed 4,300 feet to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer's disease.
The event, which took place on the summer solstice (also the longest day of 2014), was part of a larger effort through which teams across the planet joined to honor those facing Alzheimer's.
"After working at the Alzheimer's Association, I've been inspired by the overwhelming love and spirit demonstrated by families impacted by Alzheimer's," Jason Lynch, Development Associate for the Alzheimer's Association Massachusetts/New Hampshire Chapter, and Captain of the team "That's Spirit," said in a statement. "The Longest Day is our time to demonstrate that same spirit and fuel the fight against Alzheimer's."
Thus far, Team That's Spirit has raised $9,000 for the Alzheimer's Association. For more information, visit www.alz.org/MANH.
