On behalf of the Alzheimer’s Association, you’re invited to watch the new PBS documentary Age of Champions today, April 18th – 28th at www.ageofchampions.org/premiere.
Age of Champions tells the story of five competitors who sprint, leap, and swim for gold at the National Senior Olympics. You’ll meet a 100-year-old tennis champion, 86-year-old pole vaulter, and rough-and-tumble basketball grandmothers as they triumph over the limitations of age.
This opportunity is brought to you by the Alzheimer’s Association event, The Longest Day®, along with the filmmakers of Age of Champions in hopes that you, your colleagues, friends and family will be able to use this resource as a positive and entertaining tool for promoting a healthy and active lifestyle.
After being inspired by the film, register to join the Alzheimer’s Association on June 21, 2013, for The Longest Day, as together we honor those living with Alzheimer’s disease and their caregivers. The Longest Day is about patience, strength and endurance – but it’s also about a challenge. On The Longest Day, do something you love – or try something new – to advance the cause. For people facing Alzheimer’s disease, this challenge is every day. For you, it’s just one.
Organize a team for this sunrise-to-sunset event and raise funds and awareness for Alzheimer’s care, support and research. Learn more at www.alz.org/thelongestday.
