2nd Annual Reason to Hope Fundraising Breakfast

This business event is an opportunity for community organizations and leaders to demonstrate their commitment to advancing Alzheimer's research and sustaining critical Association programs and services. The Reason to Hope event played a critical role in our ability to meet the growing demands of Alzheimer's.

June 21, 2014 (Saturday) - The Longest Day
On June 21, the longest day of the year, teams across the northern hemisphere will participate in a sunrise-to-sunset endurance activities to honor the passion, dedication and strength displayed by people with Alzheimer's and their caregivers, and to raise funds for Alzheimer's care, support and research. This event is about love, patience, strength and endurance — but it's also about a challenge. In 2013, teams across the United States helped to raise over $1 million dollars. Join us and be part of the third year!

This event allows you and your team to participate with ultimate flexibility. Select an activity and work together with your friends and family to map out a course. The Alzheimer's Association will help you plan, provide fundraising support and connect you to a virtual community of other participants. We'll also be cheering you on throughout The Longest Day! Your team doesn't even have to all be in the same state or perform the same activity! (One team member must be moving from sunrise to sunset. Example:  Cindy walks for 2 hours in Virginia, Tom plays tennis for 2 hours in Maine, etc. or Cindy runs for two hours, Tom runs for the next two hours, etc.)
 Sign up for more information.
