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

The Longest Day is a spring team event to raise funds and awareness for the Alzheimer's Association®. This unique event is held annually, on or near, the summer solstice. We chose the longest day of the year, to honor those living with Alzheimer’s and their caregivers, for whom every day is the longest day.

Last Spring, 2,307 teams raised over $3.5 million to help end Alzheimer’s simply by doing something they love. Teams planned their own unique fundraising activity leading up to the summer solstice and then united in spirit on the longest day of the year to honor those facing Alzheimer’s. 

Three Easy Ways to support our chapter’s Longest Day Efforts:

1. Start a Team

2. Join a Greater Illinois Team

3. Join or donate to a local team
