SPECIAL EVENTS - LONGEST DAY COMMITTEE

Join our Development Team as we prepare for a fundraising event called Longest Day!

What is Longest Day? The Longest Day is a team event to raise funds and awareness for the Alzheimer’s Association. Held annually on summer solstice, the duration of this sunrise-to-sunset event symbolizes the challenging journey that so many living with the disease and their caregivers are asked to endure. Teams are encouraged to create their own experience as they fundraise and participate in an activity they love to honor someone facing the disease.

As a Longest Day Committee Member you will be asked to help recruit Team Captains to start teams.  You will also help brainstorm fundraising ideas and encourage Team Captains as they execute their events. Most events will be held in the month of June.
