On The Longest Day®, it’s time to make a difference.
For most of us, time passes all too quickly. Minutes, hours, days fly by in a flash – with little opportunity to slow down and savor the moment. On Friday, June 21, the Alzheimer’s Association® invites you to join us and take one day to make a difference.
One day to send a message: I will not give up. I will not back down. I will defeat Alzheimer’s. One day to tell those facing the disease: You are not alone.
Register now for The Longest Day 2013, a sunrise-to-sunset event to honor the strength, passion and endurance of those living with Alzheimer’s and their caregivers. Together with your team, do what you love on the longest day of the year to help end Alzheimer’s.
You can swim, run, ride or walk. Organize a tennis, soccer, basketball or volleyball tournament. Are you an art aficionado? Plan a day of painting and pottery. A game enthusiast? Put your mind to the test with a round of bridge or trivia. Gather friends and family from your town, across the country or around the world and spend the day making a difference. More activity ideas.
For each hour of participation, we ask that you raise $100 for the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association. In total, your team should raise a minimum of $1,600 for the approximate 16 hours of daylight on The Longest Day. Our coaching staff are ready to assist you with tips and best practices to ensure you reach your goal. Fundraising tips.
For people facing Alzheimer’s disease, this challenge is every day. For you, it’s just one. Sign up now to show that you’re in it until Alzheimer’s is finished.
