Is climbing a 14er on your bucket list this summer? Would you like to fundraise for a good cause? Join us in our Colorado 14er Peaks Challenge! We are trying to get participants on as many peaks as we can between the months of June and July. Our goal is to raise awareness of Alzheimer’s and dementia, while raising funds and hitting up those peaks.
This is done through the Alzheimer’s Association’s fundraiser, The Longest Day. For more details regarding The Longest Day, or this challenge, submit an application and someone will reach out to you shortly.
Here is how it works:
Register a team at alz.org/thelongestday
Choose hiking as your activity.
You will receive an email from a volunteer or staff partner to sign up for your peak.
Ask for donations in support of your hike.
Take pictures and show off your accomplishments!
This hiking group will also be receiving fun incentives and will gather virtually as a group to discuss further. We have a special speaker in line as well, for this group only!
All funds raised through The Longest Day go towards the care and support programs, advocacy and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.
We lead Colorado in the fight against Alzheimer's disease and related disorders by increasing the understanding of dementia and its impact on family and community, providing information and support for those affected, and promoting the advancement of research.
The Alzheimer's Association Colorado Chapter works with diagnosed individuals, families, caregivers and health care professionals to provide care and support for those who are affected by Alzheimer's disease and other dementias. We provide a 24/7 Helpline; offer free and confidentail Care Consultations; manage 90 support groups monthly; oversee Memories in the Making art program in area nursing homes; present educational programs across the state; and assist in enrolling persons with the disease in safety programs. We offer culturally approptiate support for Latinos, African Americans and the LGBT community. Several time during the year we have fundraising events, including: The Walk to END Alzheimer's, The Longest Day, Annual Symposium, Blondes vs Brunettes.
