Huntington Resident and Harborfields H.S. Physical Education Teacher Bryan Proctor Raises Awareness for Alzheimer’s Disease at the 10th Annual Distant Memories Swim

Money Raised Will Benefit Alzheimer’s Disease Resource Center, Inc.

Bay Shore, NY (July 5, 2013) — Alzheimer’s Disease Resource Center, Inc. (ADRC) has announced that Bryan Proctor, a Huntington resident and a physical education teacher at Harborfields High School, will lead a team of swimmers in the 10th Annual Distant Memories Swim on Monday, August 5, in order to draw attention to this devastating disease that impacts over 60,000 families here on Long Island. Opening ceremonies are expected to begin promptly at 10:00 a.m. Mr. Proctor and his teammates will take to the water at 11:00 a.m.

Mr. Proctor and his teammates will start out at Asharoken Beach and swim across the bay to Knollwood Beach — a distance of approximately 2.5 nautical miles (less than 3 miles). The swim will also help raise funds for Alzheimer’s Disease Resource Center, Inc. through sponsorships and corporate donors. The goal is to raise $20,000 to help support services and programs for Long Island families coping with the challenges of Alzheimer’s disease.

This issue is very close to Mr. Proctor, as his grandfather and aunt passed away from Alzheimer’s Disease. “Bryan is a champion for those with a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s Disease. He is a role model for the youth of our country,” states Mary Ann Malack-Ragona, Executive Director/Chief Executive Officer for Alzheimer’s Disease Resource Center. “He has continuously expressed the sentiment that he wants to raise awareness about this deadly disease and help families who live on Long Island.”

“It is my hope that substantial funds will be raised to assist Alzheimer’s Disease Resource Center in providing for people with dementia and other related disorders,” Mr. Proctor said.

Alzheimer’s Disease Resource Center — which is headquartered in Bay Shore and has a satellite office in Southampton — is the only local Alzheimer’s Disease advocacy and educational facility whose mission is to provide hands-on support and services to families on Long Island and the New York metropolitan area. ADRC works with family members, health care professionals and researchers to ensure quality health care and support to those impacted by Alzheimer’s Disease through care and consultation, information and referral, training, support groups, and caregiver safety products.
