A unique event to raise money for The Longest Day in support of the Alzheimer’s Association will bring fun, fitness and fundraising together at Battle Blast Laser Tag (8125 W. Sahara Ave., Las Vegas) on Wednesday, March 29th from 7:00-9:00 p.m.
During Tag 4 A Cause night laser tag customers will be invited to make a donation to the cause and receive a laser tag 5K challenge resin medal as thanks, courtesy of laser tag blogger/podcaster Laurie Jean Britton (TiviachickLovesLaserTag.com) who challenges participants to “earn the medal” by completing the equivalent of 5K distance while playing laser tag for fun and fitness.
The event will also include a high-score challenge to win the golden phaser trophy.
People can also accept the challenge virtually by making a donation online with the choice to receive a medal by mail or for pick-up during the event.

About Alzheimer’s Disease
Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive neurological disorder that affects the brain and is the most common cause of dementia. Dementia is a general term used to describe a decline in cognitive abilities such as memory, language, problem-solving, and other thinking skills.
In Alzheimer’s disease, abnormal protein deposits in the brain cause nerve cells to die, which leads to a loss of brain tissue and affects cognitive function. The disease progresses slowly over time, typically starting with mild memory loss and eventually leading to severe impairment in daily functioning.
There is currently no cure for Alzheimer’s disease, but treatments can help manage symptoms and improve quality of life for individuals with the disease. Early detection and intervention are key to managing the disease and slowing its progression.
Research into Alzheimer’s disease is ongoing, with the goal of better understanding the disease and developing more effective treatments.
