June 21 (2:00 P.M.):  Jackie’s Run at RiverScape

An Alzheimer’s advocate is running 100 miles from West Carrollton to Ft. Thomas, KY. to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s disease.

Jackie Schwalbach was Steve Schwalbach’s mom. She died from Alzheimer’s disease in 2015. “She was diagnosed at 55, which is not too far off from where I am now,” he said.

So in tribute to his mother, Schwalbach, a marathoner, runs to raise money for Alzheimer’s care and support and for additional money for Alzheimer’s research. He will kick off this year’s run on Friday, June 21, which is The Longest Day®, an Alzheimer’s Association event where people around the world do an activity they love to raise awareness of the disease.

Schwalbach will start his trek at noon in West Carrollton. He will run north to downtown Dayton’s RiverScape Metro Park, head east to Xenia and then run to Cincinnati and end in Ft. Thomas. There, a dedication of a small fountain in honor of his mother will occur.

The public is invited to wish him well at 2 p.m. on June 21 at RiverScape. Individuals interested in donating can go to www.jackiesrun.com or people can follow his progress on Facebook at Jackie’s run.

June 22 (1-4 p.m.): BOOKS for Brains #EndALZ 

New and used books of all varieties will be for sale at super lower prices with all proceeds benefiting the Alzheimer’s Association. Plus hear from several local authors! Announcement coming soon! Go to Facebook Event.
