PLEASE HELP SPREAD THE WORD ABOUT MY JOURNEY AND MISSION BY SHARING MY PAGE, SOCIAL MEDIA AND EVENTS!
Summer 2016 I lost my beloved Grandmother to Alzheimer's. I ended up missing her funeral because I was too consumed by work and professional ambitions.
So, when Winter rolled around, I embarked on a journey around the NW part of the United States and parts of Europe to go snowboarding. It was a sort of Walkabout to realign my life priorities.
In the process, I raised money and awareness for the Alzheimer's Association through their second signature fundraiser called THE LONGEST DAY.
For the 2017/2018 ski season, I am hitting the road again for my Longest Day. This time with the added activity of teaching Yoga, as I am now a 200 Hour Registered Yoga Teacher with The International Yoga Alliance. My Longest Day will run from 12/21/17 to 6/21/18.
My tentative snowboarding stops are as follows: Summit County, CO; Jackson Hole, WY; Lake Tahoe, CA; Mammoth, CA; Park City, UT; Somewhere in Washington State; Possibly somewhere in Oregon and; my international trip this season, Canada!
June 21st (Summer Solstice or literally the longest day of the year) is the official date of The Longest Day. A day in which we honor caregivers for which EVERY day is THE LONGEST DAY! This is why I thought it appropriate for me to start MY Longest Day on December 21st (the Winter Solstice).
I invite you to follow my journey.
