You may notice that quite a few of us at Newswatch 16 are wearing purple today.
Purple is the color for Alzheimer’s disease, and June is Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness month.
Newswatch 16’s Lara Greenberg organized a fundraiser Saturday for “The Longest Day.” That’s a national fundraising campaign that the Alzheimer’s association organizes every year on June 21, the longest day of the year.
Thanks to the amazing @wneptv team for wearing purple today in support of the Alzheimer's Association fundraiser The Longest Day. My incredibly generous friends donated to help me raise $1400 for @alzassociation and we'll be running and walking tomorrow to honor my dad and other loved ones we know suffering from the disease. Overwhelmed by the kindness and support. #tvnews #partylikeajournalist #reporterlife #alzheimers #nepa #thelongestday #ENDALZ @stacyl16 @jackiedetore @nikkikrize @akelley1787
