Support those touched by Alzheimer's in Southern Oregon by bringing your energy and passion to our volunteer committee for The Longest Day (TLD), our annual "do-it-yourself" fundraising program. Shine a light with us to fight the darkness of Alzheimer's and all other dementia! We are currently 100% virtual, and follow CDC guidelines.
Alzheimer's Association 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.
