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

Love for all those affected by Alzheimer's disease.

For those facing Alzheimer’s, every night and day are the longest!
Show them they are not alone by participating in The Longest Day—
a tribute event to honor those facing Alzheimer’s.

Contact Rebekah Maes 1 (800) 272-3900 or click here.

Thousands of Longest Day tributes take place each year between the longest night December 21, and the longest day, June 21. Participants create their own unique tributes by doing something they love, or something special to honor a loved one. These personal tributes rally others to the cause, and help raise awareness and funds for the Alzheimer's Association. Last year, over 10,000 people from nine countries participated in 3,200 Longest Day tributes and $3.8 million was raised for the Alzheimer’s Association. Now we can all do something to end Alzheimer’s. What will you do?
