Have Fun End Alzheimer's

About

Have you been impacted by Alzheimer's disease? Would you like to get more involved in the fight to end Alzheimer’s disease? If you answered yes, please consider joining the Longest Day Event Committee AKA "Team Awesome" and helping us grow our newest event The Longest Day!

What is The Longest Day?
The Longest Day is a tribute event that honors those facing Alzheimer's long journey, on the longest day of the year. Thousands of Longest Day tributes take place between September 21 and June 21 each year. Each participant creates their own special tribute by doing something they love or, something special to honor a loved one. Then, on June 21, thousands of participants join us for a day of honor by sharing their event pictures and stories of the loved ones they honored.

Locally, we've grown from 18 tributes that raised $23,000 in 2014 to 250 tributes that raised nearly $300,000 in 2017. We're celebrating our 3rd place finish in 2017 and shooting for #1 in the nation in 2018! We are forming local committees in St. Louis, Springfield and Columbia. Join our committee as either an Event Outreach Ambassadors or an Event Support Ambassadors, and be a part of this exciting growth!

Outreach Ambassadors Needed: We need creative, outgoing volunteers with a wide variety of interests and hobbies to serve as Longest Day Event Outreach Ambassadors. Outreach Ambassadors help spread the word about our second signature event and help engage new participants in the event.

Support Ambassadors Needed: We also need welcoming, caring, people to serve as Longest Day Event Support Ambassadors. Support Ambassadors help welcome and encourage new participants and coach them to success.

Other than a monthly one-hour meeting Nov. to June, committee members commit 4 to 8 hours a month and have the freedom and flexibility to volunteer on their own schedules. Full training and support is provided by Longest Day team!
