What is The Longest Day?

The Longest Day is all about love. Love for all those affected by Alzheimer’s disease. On the summer solstice, June 21, 2018, people across the world will join the Alzheimer’s Association to do an activity they love — or an activity loved by those affected — to help end Alzheimer’s. Together, we will raise funds and awareness for care and support while advancing research toward the first survivor of Alzheimer’s.

How do you participate?

STEP 1: SELECT AN ACTIVITY YOU LOVE

Do something you love — or honor a caregiver, someone living with Alzheimer’s, or someone you’ve lost by selecting his or her favorite hobby. From swimming to scrapbooking, you’re limited only by your imagination.

 

 

STEP 2: PICK A WAY TO PARTICIPATE

Start or join a team, host an event, or register as an individual. Choose the way that works best for you!

 

 

STEP 3: RAISE MONEY AND MOVE THE CAUSE FORWARD

Start fundraising early and you’ll see your total skyrocket. Association staff and volunteer committee members can help with tools, tips and advice.

 

 

STEP 4: MAKE PLANS FOR THE LONGEST DAY

If you’re participating solo, think about the support you need during your activity. A photographer? Cheerleaders? Ask friends and family to help.
