Climbing the World to End Alzheimer's

Alan on the summit Mt. Elbrus

I am very pleased with a 6 minute documentary by the AARP on my Summits Climb for Alzheimer’s: Memories are Everything project.

The producer, Lauren Cardillo, did a great job of taking my original pictures, videos and our live interview to tell the story of Ida Arnette, Alzheimer’s and my passion to make a difference.

The film is scheduled to air on AARP’s television series, My Generation, hosted by Leeza Gibbons the week of September 16, 2012.

My keynote presentations expand on the themes I discusses in the film. I want to remind anyone in the West Tennessee area that I will be speaking on behalf of the Pat Summit Foundation on October 7th. Also at Yale University Master Tea on September 27.

As usual, I want to remind everyone that all donations go directly to your choice of Alzheimer’s organization to raise awareness, and research money; none ever to me.

Climb On!

      Thanks John! The interview was filmed only a few days after my return from Carstensz Pyramid so I looked pretty rough, well rougher than usual 🙂
