The Longest Day Volunteer Committee - Alzheimer’s Association

The Longest Day is the day with the most light - the summer solstice. And it’s the day the Alzheimer’s Association calls on everyone to fight Alzheimer’s disease by raising funds and awareness for care, support, and research. Thousands of participants across the world will come together and stand up to the darkness of Alzheimer’s through an activity of their choice.

Your Role:

As a member of The Longest Day Volunteer Committee, you will work alongside Alzheimer’s Association staff to maximize the number, quality, and outcomes of TLD. The Committee is tasked with team recruitment and retention, planning, and marketing and promotion of TLD events. Additionally, the committee members will support teams through coaching in fundraising and event planning.

We are excited to form a diverse committee that represents our community. We will work with you to find a role that fits your interests, skills, and schedule.

Mission Statement

Our mission: To eliminate Alzheimer's disease through the advancement of research, to provide and enhance care and support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health. Our vision is a world without Alzheimer's.

Description

We are the Greater Kentucky/Southern Indiana Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association, the largest private, nonprofit funder of research on Alzheimer's in the world. We are one of over 70 Alzheimer's Association Chapters serving communities across the United States. We have marked great success with the introduction of the Breakthrough Act, calling for $2 billion in federal funding for Alzheimer's research at the National Institute of Health and the advancement of NAPA, the National Alzheimer's Project Act, designed to create a national strategic plan focused on the Alzheimer's crisis. Our chapter remains heavily focused on the needs of the caregiver, both family and professional, as their role in the journey increases during later stages. Our Teaching Learning Institute, celebrating and sharing the Best Friends Approach, reaches more individuals each year, with sold-out seminars on the basics of dementia, improving activities, surviving behavioral changes, and grieving the loss of past relationships.
