Day-Long Cab Ride Across St. Louis to #EndALZ
June is Alzheimer’s & Brain Awareness month, and every year St. Louis County Cab & Yellow Taxi participates in The Longest Day by hosting the Day-Long Cab Ride!
The cab ride was part of the Alzheimer’s Association’s Longest Day event, which involves thousands of individual events and activities taking place worldwide, and hundreds in St. Louis, happening on the summer solstice. This year the Day-Long Cab Ride was on June 21st. During the Day-Long Cab Ride, Alzheimer’s Association of Greater Missouri Chapter, Vice President of Communication Peggy Killian rode in our taxi cabs from sunrise to sunset. She went on a cab ride all across the St. Louis area, picking up various passengers who shared their stories and personal connection to the disease and their involvement in the fight to End Alzheimer’s. She also made stops to visit ten other Longest Day activities, everything from pickle-ball to bocce!
Our team raised just over $1,500 to help fund programs and services for families living with Alzheimer’s and to advance critical research to find a cure.
Below is a fun photo recap of Peggy’s journey across St. Louis on The Longest Day!
