GO PURPLE
Alzheimer's Awareness Campaign

Join the Fight.


Alzheimer’s disease is on the rise. And the time is now.
  

Take the Pledge.


In honor of Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month, we are calling on organizations to raise their voices and Go Purple.  Through this awareness initiative, Go Purple increases knowledge about Alzheimer’s disease, the importance of early diagnosis, and services to support families through the Alzheimer’s Association.
 

Date: 
Month of June

What: Raise awareness! Select one or more dates during the month of June to hold Go Purple activities.

There are two main ways you can support the cause throughout the month of June.

  • Go Purple: Go Purple allows faith communities, organizations, companies, and social groups to support the Alzheimer’s Association by going purple to raise awareness of the disease and those impacted. Participants will receive a packet complete with END ALZ stickers, Alzheimer's awareness ribbons, disease information, activity suggestions, step-by-step instructions for planning and implementing your activity, a modifiable poster, email blasts, social media messages and talking points. Register early so you can plan your activity!

  • Go Purple with a Purpose: Many organizations and groups choose to supplement their Go Purple awareness efforts in June, with a variety of fundraising activities to benefit the Alzheimer’s Association. Thousands of people worldwide Go Purple with Purpose in June by participating in The Longest Day, an event that honors those affected by Alzheimer’s on June 21, the longest day of the year. Walk teams can also Go Purple with a Purpose in June to jumpstart their fundraising efforts. Event participants, get a donation page, online resources and a variety of support materials to help them plan their activities and Go Purple with a Purpose in June. Register early so you can plan your activity!

By participating in this event, your organization can be enhanced through:

  • Opportunities to learn about support for families facing Alzheimer’s disease.
  • Educational resources and linkages to support services for your constituents.
  • Volunteer opportunities available with the Alzheimer’s Association.
  • Unite in an effort to raise money and awareness for the Alzheimer's Association.

If you or your organization are interested in participating in either of these initiatives, fill out a form below. Once registered, participants will receive a welcome packet that includes activities ideas, tips, messaging and more!
