The Longest Day®

The Longest Day is an awareness and fundraising campaign for the Alzheimer's Association, and our main day of activity during Alzheimer's & Brain Awareness Month each June. On the longest day of the year, the Summer Solstice, we call on individuals around the globe to come together in solidarity from sunrise to sunset (roughly sixteen hours) to honor and remember friends and family affected by Alzheimer's disease. This year, The Longest Day is June 20, 2016

Check out our summary from 2015 by clicking here and keep up to date on our 2016 activities by liking our Facebook event page.

To learn more about The Longest Day or register, please visit thelongestday.alz.org or contact Megan Bourg via (504) 613.6505 ext. 8038 or mbourg@alz.org.

How can you put your passion to work on The Longest Day? The activities are limitless! Long-time volunteer and supporter Bonnie Hay combines her passion for professional bull riding with her desire to raise funds and awareness in the fight to end Alzheimer's. Bonnie's Personal Quest for Alzheimer's Awareness started in 2004, and includes promoting awareness of the disease through her "SAYiWONT" t-shirts and purple flanks on the rodeo circuit. Learn more about Bonnie and our other supporters by visiting out Volunteer page.
