Alzheimer's & Brain Awareness Month

Join the movement to end Alzheimer’s during Alzheimer’s & Brain Awareness Month
June is Alzheimer’s & Brain Awareness Month, and the Alzheimer’s Association needs you to get involved and raise awareness about Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. Everyone who has a brain is at risk to develop Alzheimer’s, a disease that is often misunderstood. Did you know:
• Alzheimer’s is fatal. It kills more than breast and prostate cancer combined.
• Alzheimer’s is not normal aging. It’s a progressive brain disease without a cure.
• Alzheimer’s is more than memory loss. It appears through a variety of signs and symptoms.

During the month of June, the Alzheimer’s Association asks you to learn more about Alzheimer’s, share your story and take action.



Ways to participate in June:

• Learn and share the facts about Alzheimer’s at
• Discover how to go purple — the color of Alzheimer’s awareness — on Facebook, Twitter and more!
• Join or donate to The Longest Day® — a collection of events held on or around June 21 to honor those facing Alzheimer's with strength, heart and endurance. Visit to find a calendar of public events near you or start your own team!
• Attend or support a community fundraiser in your area to help raise funds & awareness for Hoosiers facing Alzheimer's disease.
• Join us at The Memory Cup golf outing.
• Educate yourself on the 10 warning signs of Alzheimer's disease at Call 800.272.3900 to find out when the Know the 10 Signs education program will be held in your area or to request the program for your group.
