Binghamton’s Boris The Skeleton Takes Up The Fight Against Alzheimer’s
June is Alzheimer's and Brain Awareness Month and we are encouraged to take action and join in the fight to help stop Alzheimer's. Alzheimer's is common for people over the age of 65 but it can affect younger people too. It affects us all in one way or another.
In New York alone, over 400,000 people are living with this dreaded disease and more than a million friends and family members are doing what they can to help them. We all know someone that is suffering from this and we ask ourselves what can we do.
Boris The Skeleton Takes Up The Fight Against Alzheimer's
Well Boris The Skeleton heard about this, and he wanted to do what he could to help. For those who may not know who Boris The Skelton is, he's a 12-foot skeleton from Endwell that has a personality all of his own. Read about his story here.
He helped bring people joy during the coronavirus pandemic and he wants to continue to help now. That's why he's having his first charity tee shirt fundraiser and it's no surprise that he's supporting the Alzheimer's Association.
You only have until Thursday, July 1st to help Boris make a difference in our community and you'll get a pretty cool T-shirt to wear too. He knows that with everyone's help, the strength of our light will outshine the darkness of Alzheimer's.
Here are some other things that we can do to help in the fight against Alzheimer's and help to restore people's mental well being.
