The Longest Day
Text Size controlsNormal font sizeMedium font sizeLarge font size

 

For most of us, time passes all too quickly. Minutes, hours, days fly by in a flash — with little opportunity to slow down and savor the moment.

On June 21, the Alzheimer’s Association invites you to join us and take one day to make a difference.

One day to send a message: I will not give up. I will not back down. I will defeat Alzheimer’s. One day to tell those facing the disease: You are not alone.

The Longest Day® is a sunrise-to-sunset event to honor the strength, passion and endurance of those living with Alzheimer’s and their caregivers. Together with your team, spend the longest day of the year doing what you love to help end Alzheimer’s.

You can swim, run, ride or walk.
Organize a tennis, soccer, basketball or volleyball tournament.
Are you an art aficionado? Plan a day of painting and pottery.
Are you a real card shark? Host a poker or bridge game.
Gather friends and family from your town, across the country or around the world and spend the day making a difference. 

For each hour of participation, we ask that you raise $100 for the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association. In total, your team should raise a minimum of $1,600 for the approximate 16 hours you’re active on The Longest Day. Our coaching staff is ready to assist you with tips and best practices to ensure you reach your goal. 

For more information about starting a team in 2015, call 800.272.3900.
