June is Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month, and all over the world, people are finding ways to raise awareness of the 50 million living with Alzheimer’s and other dementias.

The South Carolina chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association  and its supporters have come up with all sorts of creative ways to support the cause, including Sunday’s cornhole tournament at Steel Hands Brewing in Cayce.

The event featured two-person teams competing in the double-elimination tournament. It was organized by Team Purple, one of two teams of ladies who will compete June 29 in End Alz in the End Zone, a flag football game and fundraiser.

The cornhole tournament, football game and other events throughout June surround the Longest Day. On June 21, the summer solstice and the year’s longest day, people around the world come together to raise awareness and funds to fight Alzheimer’s.

Funds raised throughout the month by the South Carolina chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association will be used to educate people about the disease and other dementias, and to provide support for those battling dementia along with their families and caregivers.

More information on the fight against Alzheimer’s and how you can support the cause is available at alz.org/sc.
