On June 21, we will offer an Open Garden Day on The Longest Day, at our wheelchair-accessible memorial garden, the MargFMac Front Garden Loop (0.1 mile), from 10am to 4pm (202 Haverhill Road, Topsfield, MA, 01983). Open to the Public and Free-of-Charge, we will accept free-will donations to benefit the Alzheimer’s Association of MA/NH. Our online donation page is available now and after June 21.

The Alzheimer’s Association was a huge help to us, 2003 – 2008, when we used their free-of-charge 24/7 Helpline and Care Consultation services, as we companioned my mom Margaret, who suffered from Frontotemporal Degeneration, a rare form of dementia. This fundraising event is one way we are able to pay back the organization that has supported us and supports millions, every day, 24/7.
This event is a great alternative for people North of Boston who would like to participate in an accessible-outdoors fundraiser for the Alzheimer’s Association of MA/NH, who are unable to participate in the Walk, Ride, or Triathlon.
Moving forward with a listening heart,
vision, inquiry, and action,
I’m participating in The Longest Day to show my love for all those affected by Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. On June 21, I am joining others around the world and doing what I love to honor people living with Alzheimer’s, their caregivers, and those lost to the disease, while raising funds and awareness to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association.
Today, an estimated 47 million people across the world are living with dementia. This number is set to skyrocket to 75 million by 2030. In the United States alone, more than 15 million caregivers generously dedicate themselves to those with Alzheimer’s and dementia. These numbers will only continue to rise unless we take action.
Together, we can show those facing Alzheimer’s disease they are not alone. Please make a donation to help the Alzheimer’s Association advance research toward the first survivor of Alzheimer’s and provide care and support to those facing the disease today.
