The Longest Day

Greater Missouri Presenting Sponsor: UMB Bank

Love for all those affected by Alzheimer's disease.

For those facing Alzheimer’s, every day feels like the longest!
Show them they are not alone by participating in The Longest Day—
a tribute event to honor those facing Alzheimer’s.

Thousands of Longest Day tributes take place each year between September 21, and the longest day, June 21. Participants create their own unique tributes by doing something they love, or something special to honor a loved one. Then, on June 21, the longest day of the year, all participants join us for a special day of honor by sharing their event pictures and stories of the loved one's they honored. These personal tributes rally others to the cause, and help raise awareness and funds for the Alzheimer's Association. Last year, nearly 13,000 people from nine countries participated in 5,010 Longest Day tributes and $5.4 million was raised for the Alzheimer’s Association. Now we can all do something to end Alzheimer’s. What will you do?

This year, we're counting on you to join us too! Register as a Longest Day team captain, event host or individual fundraiser now at
