In My Community
Welcome to the Alzheimer's Association - Greater Pennsylvania Chapter


Put your passion to good work on June 21st by participating in The Longest Day® team event.

Your team will work together to raise funds and honor the strength, heart and endurance of those facing this devastating disease. From sunrise to sunset, you choose your activity in the fight against Alzheimer's disease.

How do I participate?

Step 1: Grab Your Friends

Grab your friends, family and co-workers and form a team. You don’t have to live in the same city or state — or even the same country! Ask everyone to get involved – you’ll be surprised how many people have been affected by Alzheimer’s and want to join the fight.

Step 2: Put Your Passion to Good Work

On The Longest Day, select an activity you love — or honor a caregiver, or someone living with or lost to the disease – by selecting his or her favorite hobby. You’re limited only by your imagination.

Need Some Ideas?

  • Dance by hosting a Zumba or workout class and ask each participant to donate
  • Golf or hike with your family and friends
  • Garden for the day
  • Music, host a live jam session for neighbors and friends
  • Cycle, "Team Peddlers" for a cure

Step 3: Raise Money and Move The Cause Forward

Every team is asked to register and raise a goal of $1,600 to further the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association. Fundraise leading up to and on The Longest Day.

We’ll help with coaching, tools and advice!

Step 4: Plan Your Day

From sunrise to sunset, The Longest Day stretches 16 hours. Divide the day into segments and ask teammates to cover a portion. If you live in the same area, host an all-day event to cheer each other on. If your team members are in different locations, stay in touch with texts, tweets and Facebook posts.

Step 5: Celebrate At Sunset

Gather your team — whether in person or virtually — and celebrate your accomplishments while recognizing the strength of those facing Alzheimer’s.

24-hour Helpline 800-272-3900

The Helpline can accommodate more than 200 languages and dialects.
