The Longest Day is the day with the most light — the summer solstice. But you don’t have to wait until June to honor your loved one. Events honoring The Longest Day happen throughout the year, fueling our mission-related initiatives of care, support and research.

Help us fight the darkness of Alzheimer’s and raise awareness in your community through an activity of your choice. Maybe you could host a BBQ on the solstice and invite your friends to make a donation. Or you could host a fishing tournament or kareoke night. Some participants like to set an endurance goal of miles to walk, bike or swim. Others like to bake family recipes and sell delicious items for donations.

Whatever activity you have in mind, it's easy to get started.
