Trainers Support JUMP FOR ALZ at Showplace Spring Spectacular

Raising Funds for Alzheimer's Research and Awareness

Crete, IL - June 17, 2017 – Trainers are getting on board to support a fundraiser, JUMP FOR ALZ, headed by Brenda Mueller to raise funds for Alzheimer's Research and Awareness, as June is Alzheimer's Awareness Month.  The main fundraising day is Wednesday, June 21st, which the Alzheimer's Association has deemed The Longest Day. During the Longest Day, fundraisers are asked to raise funds by doing what they love. It made sense to Mueller to do something related to horses. The event takes place at the Showplace Spring Spectacular Show at the new HITS Balmoral Park in Crete, IL.
