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



People across the globe joined together to honor those facing Alzheimer's disease by participating in The Longest Day® on Saturday, June 21, 2014. The Longest Day is a sunrise-to-sunset event to honor the strength, passion and endurance of those living with Alzheimer’s disease and their caregivers. Teams completed a day filled with activity to raise funds and awareness for the efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association.

Held annually on the summer solstice, The Longest Day symbolizes the seemingly endless journey so many facing Alzheimer’s disease are asked to endure. Participants completed approximately 16 hours of activity ranging from running, cooking, knitting to playing bridge, to help advance Alzheimer’s care, support and research.

Thanks to the hikers, knitters, Knoxville Bridge Club, Walgreens and Knoxville Disc Club for supporting the Alzheimer's Association Eastern Tennessee Chapter and helping make The Longest Day a success! 

Save the date for The Longest Day in 2015!
