‘The Longest Day’ Global Fundraiser Set for June 20
"The Longest Day" is the summer solstice — the day with the most light — which falls this year on June 20. It’s also the day each year that people all over world battle “the darkness of Alzheimer’s” through fundraising for the Alzheimer’s Association (AA). All proceeds raised in the annual daylong fundraiser go to patient and family care and support, and for research into the progressive neurological disorder that affects about 5 million people in the United States and more than 50 million globally. Efforts to find a disease-altering treatment for Alzheimer’s, let alone a cure, have long been confounded. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the association is recommending that Longest Day participants this year try virtual fundraising efforts and adhere to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines when planning in-person activities. “While participation in The Longest Day may look a little different this year due to physical distancing, we have plenty of fun ideas you can do at home to engage family, friends, and coworkers,” the Alzheimer’s Association states on its website.
