About "The Longest Day"
The Longest Day is the day with the most light — the summer solstice. On June 20, thousands of participants from across the world come together to fight the darkness of Alzheimer's through an activity of their choice. Together, they use their creativity and passion to raise funds and awareness for the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association.
If you have a loved one living with this incurable disease or if you've lost someone who bravely battled it, you know first hand that we must find a way to either slow the disease and hopefully one day, completely obliterate it.
People like you with a deep understanding of this relentless disease know that it's the sixth leading cause of death in America. And the worst part? One in three seniors dies with Alzheimer's or dementia.
Now, imagine people like us, holding hands across America on The Longest Day, letting our light shine on the darkness of Alzheimer's and dementia, as we help raise awareness. Are you in?
