The Longest Day®
Text Size controlsNormal font sizeMedium font sizeLarge font size

People across the globe will join together to honor those facing Alzheimer's disease by participating in The Longest Day®. The Longest Day is a sunrise-to-sunset event to honor the strength, passion and endurance of those living with Alzheimer’s disease and their caregivers. Teams completed a day filled with activity to raise funds and awareness for the efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association.

Held annually on the summer solstice, The Longest Day symbolizes the seemingly endless journey so many facing Alzheimer’s disease are asked to endure. Participants completed approximately 16 hours of activities ranging from running, cooking, knitting and playing bridge to help advance Alzheimer’s care, support and research. 

Thank you so much to everyone who participated in the 2016 Longest Day Events. We look forward to working with you again on the Longest Day 2017!

Thank you Team Fountain City Book Club for hosting a great fundraising book club dinner for The Longest Day!
