In addition to Walk to End Alzheimer's, the Alzheimer's Association Louisiana Chapter hosts several special events throughout the year to engage those who support our efforts to eradicate Alzheimer's disease. Please contact our office if you would like more information or to participate in an upcoming event.

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.

To learn more about The Longest Day or register, please visit thelongestday.alz.org 

To see a Longest Day volunteer putting her passion into action, check out our long-time volunteer and supporter, Bonnie Hay. Bonnie 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.

RivALZ Blondes vs. Brunettes

RivALZ is a flag football game in which the two participating teams are divided based on the age-old rivalry between blondes and brunettes. Whether you are interested in playing, coaching, cheering, or volunteering, there is a place for you! Visit our main Blondes vs. Brunettes page for complete game details and all events leading up to the big day!
