Casual Thursday for the Alzheimer's Association is June 21, "The Longest Day"

Dates: 06/21/2018 (Thu): 8:00 am- 10:00 pm
Category: Wellness Center
Description:

The Wellness Center is partnering with the Hudson Valley Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association to recognize Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month in June. Alzheimer’s is the sixth leading cause of death in the US. It’s a progressive brain disease that affects 5.7 million Americans and their loved ones, and the number of those affected is predicted to rise to nearly 14 million by 2050.  Most likely, you know someone dealing with this disease. Our goal is to increase awareness of it and raise much-needed funds for research and education.

On June 21, the College will observe a Casual Thursday event. On this day, employees who make a $5 donation to the Alzheimer’s Association will be given a Casual for a Day sticker and will be permitted to dress down for work (business appropriate, no flip-flops.) Please wear your sticker to identify that you are participating in the event and to raise awareness of Alzheimer’s.

The following employees have volunteered to serve as Casual Day Reps and will be available to accept donations and hand out stickers (please bring correct change):
