The Longest Day

For an individual with Alzheimer’s, as well as their loving caregivers, every day is The Longest Day. The Alzheimer’s Association has created a do-it-yourself activity that not only symbolizes the daily challenges of the disease, but also honors those we’ve lost or living with Alzheimer's. The Longest Day is a personalized fundraiser that encourages you to do what you love in support of someone that you love - and allows you to get as creative as you desire.

 The Longest Day Planning Committee  Join the planning committee and help us have the most successful year, yet! We are seeking volunteers to promote The Longest Day, recruit new teams and make our participants feel loved. Committee members are accepted on a rolling basis, please contact Signature Events Manager, Katie Mang, at or 216.342.5593
 Start a team Sign up as team captain an d ask your family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, colleagues, classmates or community members – anyone you know – to join you in raising funds and participating in a team activity to raise funds and awareness on or leading up to The Longest Day.
 Host an event Want to plan an activity, but there’s no need to recruit team members? Sign up as an event host, and plan a party or event that raises funds and awareness for the Alzheimer’s Association on or leading up to The Longest Day.
 Participate as an individual  Fly solo and participate in The Longest Day. Sign up as a participant, select and activity and utilize all of the resources on the website to raise funds and awareness for the Alzheimer’s Association. This is great for individuals that want to ask for pledges or donations in return for doing some type of activity, for example $1 for each step taken; $50 for each pie baked. The possibilities are limitless.
 So do what you love and make sure you choose the date that works best for your team. Need some inspiration?

For more information, contact Katie Mang at (216) 342-5606 or
