The Longest Day


We've set aside the longest day of the year, June 20, to honor the strength of
all those facing Alzheimer's with a fundraising and awareness event
you can organize with friends and families,
but you can plan your even for ANY DAY in June
(which is Alzheimer's and Brain Awareness month!).
You are encouraged to do something you love--gardening, walking, reading,
cooking, biking, hiking, etc--to honor someone you love!
You can organize your event like a relay and 'hand off' the challenge very hour, or
every few hours, or however you want to handle it.

 We are delighted by the support of
inside the Walden Galleria (Cheektowaga)!
The company will donate all race fees for pre-booked race times made on-line!

all walk-in racers on June 20.
