Right now we are socially distanced from our colleagues, teammates, friends and family. The Longest Day is an opportunity to bring our groups together and share in a joyful activity. It can help eliminate some isolation everyone is feeling, be fun, and raise funds for the Alzheimer’s Association Washington & Northern Idaho Chapter.
The Longest Day is the day with the most light - the summer solstice on June 20th. 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.
You can start at any time and still protect everyone’s health by practicing social distancing! Being part of The Longest Day is great for families and people of all ages. Honor someone you love that has been impacted by Alzheimer's Disease by doing an event in their memory.
Here are some of the fundraising events people are planning to do around the country:
-Love Arts & Crafts? Offer to teach an online class; create quilt squares and sell for a donation; host a knitting challenge; Host a virtual Paint-n-Sip party!
-Love games? Host a virtual game night and ask for donations - consider an online Bingo night, a Monopoly tournament, a Puzzle Race for completing a 500 piece puzzle.
-Musician or love music? Host an Online karaoke party! Consider getting your friends together online for a mini-concert. Dance it up - maybe do a theme night dance party in costume.
Register now and we can help you turn something you love doing into a fundraising event that makes a real impact for the 120,000 Washingtonians living with Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia.

About Alzheimer's Association Washington State Chapter, Serving Washington State & Northern Idaho
19031 33rd ave W, Suite 301, Lynnwood, WA 98188, US
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.
The Washington State Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association was incorporated as a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization in Washington State in 1978. It was started by family caregivers who came together around a common need of getting support and help for their loved ones with dementia. This Chapter was one of seven founding chapters of the National Alzheimer's Association, headquartered in Chicago. Today this Chapter serves individuals living with Alzheimer's disease (and related dementias), their families, health care professionals and administrators, and the general public throughout a 23 county service area that runs from the Canadian to the Oregon borders.
