Fort Thomas Resident Steve Schwalbach Participating in 15-hour Run for Alzheimer's to Honor His Mother, Jackie

Schwalbach will be running this Saturday, October 24, from 5 a.m. to 8 p.m., throughout the Northern Kentucky area.

In partnership with and in support of the Alzheimer’s Association, Fort Thomas local Steve Schwalbach is running for 15 hours in honor of his mother’s 15-year battle with Alzheimer’s disease. Schwalbach will be running this Saturday, October 24, from 5 a.m. to 8 p.m., throughout the Northern Kentucky area.

The Schwalbach family’s journey with Alzheimer’s began in 2000 when Steve’s mother Jackie was diagnosed. After a 15-year battle, Jackie sadly passed away in 2015. Schwalbach has always had a passion for running and decided to use that passion as a way to fundraise for the Alzheimer’s Association. He dedicates each run to his mother and has aptly named it, Jackie’s Run.

"I hope one day we can find a cure for Alzheimer’s, so I don't have to do this," Schwalbach said. "That's the main goal and to bring awareness to Alzheimer's,” he added.

Starting at 11am, Schwalbach will be taking breaks every hour on the hour for media interviews at the corner of Highland and Grand Ave in Fort Thomas. Stay connected on the Alzheimer’s Association social media pages to get more information. Attached is the route Schwalbach will be taking.
