Amblin for Alzheimer’s 2020
Amblin’ is a little different this year! We are still Amblin’ but we are doing it with the required 6-foot physical-distance that’s required now. We all need a little fun and are encouraging you to amble anyway that you want while staying safe! Amble up a mountain, through a craft or knitting project, with a book, in a boat or kayak, on your snowmobile, bike or dog sled, in your wheelchair, down the road in your car! You may amble alone or build a team…see below.
The funds you raise in this campaign help us continue to provide classes and support groups (now via Zoom) for caregivers and Alaskans living with Alzheimer’s or related dementia and care coordination and consultation for Alaskans with any disability who need help getting the care and support they need.
Once you’ve registered for a team, invite friends to join you with the link you’ll get after registration. Then join and invite your teammates to join our Amblin’ Facebook Group or Instagram page and share photos/videos of yourself and others amblin’. Let your teammates know they may win prizes for the photos they share on our social media pages.
Earlybird photo/video posters’ names will be put in a hat and three will be drawn for gift certificates for 10 Breakfast Burritos from Sal’s New York Grill (you’ll have to schedule the pick-up date with Sal if you win). We’ll have a “people’s choice” prize and others as we get closer to the end of the campaign, so keep checking in.
Other prizes will be given:
1) the team captain whose team raises the most funds will win two tickets anywhere Alaska Airlines flies (generously donated Alaska Airlines, good for one year starting 5/21/2020)
2) the team captain whose team raises the second most funds will win an apple watch donated by GCI
3) the team captain with the most registered amblers will also win an apple watch also Donated by GCI.
