Bristol Blues to support Alzheimer’s disease awareness and research during the June 15 game

The Bristol Blues will support Alzheimer’s disease awareness and research at their June 15 game.

Doors open at 5 p.m. at Muzzy Field and the game is scheduled to start at 6:30 p.m. The Bristol Blues will be collecting used shoe donations to support the Walk to End Alzheimer’s Disease.

Additionally, a portion of ticket sales will also be donated to Team Brainstorm to support the Alzheimer’s Association.

Sarah Lucian, director of community relations for the Bristol Blues, said the Connecticut chapter of the Walk to End Alzheimer’s will hold its event Oct. 2 in Rockwell Park.

“The Alzheimer’s Association runs walks in over 600 communities across the country,” Lucian said. “They are the world’s largest fundraising support group for Alzheimer’s research. The Bristol Blues are honored and delighted to welcome them.”

Lucian said Team Brainstorm will be at the June 15 game. They will have information about Alzheimer’s disease and there will also be raffles that evening.

“For me, I’m lucky that Alzheimer’s hasn’t touched a friend or family member yet,” Lucian said. “But it’s something that affects a lot of people’s lives, so I’m looking forward to hearing more.”

Lucian said the Connecticut Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association’s goal is to raise $126,000 for Alzheimer’s disease research this year.

“So far they’ve raised $13,856,” she said.

Bristol Blues opening day for this season is this Thursday, June 9. Lucian said several “Promo Nights” will be held throughout the season to support different causes – from breast cancer to multiple sclerosis and more. A promo night schedule is available at bristolblues.pointstreaksites.com/view/bristolblues/2022-schedule/promo-schedule-1.

Tickets for the June 15 game are $10 and available at bristolbluesstore.com.
