The Longest Day
For people facing Alzheimer’s disease, every day is a demonstration of love, patience, strength and endurance. On June 21, 2013, the longest day of the year, teams across the world will honor these people by participating in The Longest Day, a sunrise-to-sunset relay event to raise funds for the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association. Join The Longest Day and challenge yourself and your team to 16 hours of activity to advance the fight against Alzheimer’s.
For people facing Alzheimer's, this challenge is every day. For us, it's just one. Check out what local teams are doing to show those facing Alzheimer's that they are not alone. Support a local team, join a local team or start your own team.
To support local families battling the Alzheimer's epidemic, the Alzheimer’s Association St. Louis Chapter is partnering with top media outlets across our service area to host a sunrise-to-sunset caregiver phone bank (call-in number: 800.272.3900). For 16 hours straight, Alzheimer’s Association staff and volunteers will be manning the toll-free phone bank to answer questions, provide information and give support to the countless caregivers who face this disease so bravely every day. On June 21, 2013, make sure to tune in to our media partners to hear from experts on the importance of early detection, available resources, tips for addressing driving and dementia, and much more.
