You can be a part of the 2017 Longest Day!  On June 21, the summer solstice and longest day of the year, team up with the Alzheimer's Association and select any activity you 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. To participate you can register here, or contact Nicole Gorski for more information at ngorski@alz.org.
