Honor those facing Alzheimer's on
The Longest Day

The Longest Day® is a sunrise-to-sunset team event held on the summer solstice to honor the strength, passion and endurance of those facing Alzheimer's disease. On June 21, teams will unite for 16 hours of consecutive activity to raise awareness and funds for the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association. Start a team and join us to show you're in it until Alzheimer's is finished.

Grab friends and family, raise big bucks to fight Alzheimer's

Molly Waugh's mother was diagnosed with dementia three years ago. On The Longest Day, her family will be biking, paddle boarding and fishing to honor her. And while Molly thought the suggested fundraising goal of $1,600 would be difficult to reach, the team's total is at $21,000 and counting.

Do what you love to make a difference

Yvette Holder is participating in The Longest Day to honor her mother-in-law, Virginia, who has been living with Alzheimer's since 2007. Virginia stays with the family at home, but on The Longest Day, Yvette's team will be visiting people with Alzheimer's in a senior care facility, where they will walk, bike, dance and paint with residents. "I love the idea you can do whatever you love to do in this event," Yvette said.

Playing cards may be a bridge to staying mentally sharp

On The Longest Day, more than 100 American Contract Bridge League (ACBL) teams will be playing marathon bridge games to recognize the dedication of Alzheimer's caregivers and the game of bridge as an activity to help keep the brain healthy.
