The Longest Day is all about love. Love for all those affected by Alzheimer's Disease. On and before Summer Solstice 6/21/18 people across the world will join the Alzheimer's Association to do an activity they love -- or an activity loved by those affected -- to help end Alzheimer's. The committee is the driving force by leading the way of enhancing the efforts of our participants in recruitment, cultivation, retention and fundraising.
