Wilson’s World: Hitting the Pickleball Court to Benefit the Alzheimer’s Association

Dave's Day Charity Pickleball Tournament will be held on Saturday, June 29th at the Huntersville Recreation Center.

HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. – Wilson donned his best Hawaiian shirt, juiced up with his Activia, and did one stretch before he hit the pickleball court with Peggy Johnson and some of the participants of Dave’s Day Charity Pickleball Tournament.  Needless to say, Wilson’s pickleball form is not his best.

The Dave’s Day Charity Pickleball Tournament will be on Saturday, June 29th as part of the Alzheimer’s ‘The Longest Day’ continuing fundraising events. Peggy Johnson, organizer of the tournament, is holding the tournament in honor of her husband Dave, who is living with Alzheimer’s.

Entry fee into the tournament is a donation to the Alzheimer’s Association.  The event will be at the Huntersville Recreation Center – 11836 Verhoeff Dr in Huntersville.  The tournament runs from 9am until 2pm.

June is Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month and the upcoming pickleball tournament is just one of the many fundraising events that will be held this Friday, June 21st. This Friday is the summer solstice when we will get the most daylight of any day in the year.  And known at the Alzheimer’s Association as “The Longest Day,” a day when people across the world participate in fundraising activities to shine a light on the fight against Alzheimer’s.  Learn more about the Alzheimer’s Association and how you can help at their website alz.org.
