ST. PAUL, Minn. - The 5th annual Standing Strong event benefits brain disease research. The event began in 2013 with the support of Super Bowl Champion Ben Utecht, the American Brain Foundation and the American Academy of Neurology.

This year's event features highly acclaimed play, DOT, which adds an element of humor as a family attempts to deal with their mother's Alzheimer’s over the holidays. The evening will also include comments by Dan Gasby, adding his personal experience of watching his wife, B. Smith, suffer from this disease.
