The Longest Day® teams pay tribute to those affected by Alzheimer’s
On June 21, hundreds of teams challenged themselves from sunrise to sunset to raise money (over $900,000) and awareness to fight Alzheimer’s as part of The Longest Day. Among the efforts were a day-long run at a high school track, bridge games sponsored by American Contract Bridge League, a climb of Mount Kilimanjaro and non-stop dancing at a Rolling Stones concert.

The sun has set on The Longest Day® almost everywhere across the globe. But in the darkness of the night, there is a light of hope for better days ahead.
Today, thousands of amazing participants were active in pursuit of a new future for those facing Alzheimer’s disease. Tonight, they are our light as we commit to this journey until Alzheimer’s is finished.
Thank you for being part of The Longest Day and for sharing your light in the fight against Alzheimer’s disease, and for sharing your light tomorrow as you begin a new day. I am confident that together we can achieve our vision of a world without Alzheimer’s disease.
Two years ago, I was walking along the beach, reflecting on all of the people I meet who are facing Alzheimer’s disease – and the passion, strength and endurance they show every day in this fight. What if for one day, we could honor these individuals and show them they are not alone? Welcome to The Longest Day® – OUR day to show the world we are in it until Alzheimer’s is finished.
As the sun rises, thousands of participants across the globe are setting out on a journey – they are cycling, running, playing bridge, gathering friends, playing music and so much more. Their journey will continue until the sun sets and together, we take a moment to bring light to this cause.
In support of those showing their endurance today, those who face the long and tough road with Alzheimer’s every day, and for future generations who need our commitment now, I will personally match the first $5,000 donated today with a gift in the same amount. Give now.
Once you’ve donated, you can also:
- Encourage a participant. Send a note of support to someone going the distance.
- Track the action. Follow teams across the country, keeping track of dollars raised, activities completed and other happenings.
- Read our blog. Teams are sharing their inspiring reasons for participating.
- Get social on Facebook and Twitter. Follow us, tweet and update your status.
One day, one event, to make a difference in the fight against Alzheimer’s. Please, take part of your day to join us.
