Good News: Annual Car Cruise is Ready to Roll

Northern Michigan Alzheimers Association's Accelerate the Cure
By Lynda Wheatley | May 23, 2020

Congratulations, northern Michiganders — we’ve flattened one curve, and now we’ve got the green light to corner a bunch of them. The annual Accelerate the Cure — a car-enthusiast cruise hosted by the Northern Michigan Alzheimers Association — is on, and you can join.

Some rules and details will be finalized later to reflect the social distancing recommendations in place at the time, but what we do know is this: At 9am Saturday, June 20, participants will begin a majestic drive through northern Michigan, offering drive-by honks and hellos while coasting by assisted living centers, and making a few safe and scenic pitstops along the way. See to register ($100 per car for two people) or donate.
