The JAX MODEL-AD Center staff and friends participated in the The Longest Day to raise funds and awareness for the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association.  We started the day with sunrise on the top of Cadillac Mountain, then hiked every peak in Acadia, paddled and swam in Long Pond, and ended the day with sunset at Pretty Marsh.

Together we raised more than $7,000 and spoke to many people throughout the day about the plight of Alzheimer’s patients and caregivers.

Thanks to all we participated and donated, and thanks to Adam Lacher of the Maine Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association for joining us for lunch.
