High School students - we need your help to end Alzheimer’s disease! The Alzheimer's Association of Washington and Northern Idaho and Alaska are seeking High School volunteers to register and participate in a summer-time signature event, The Longest Day.

Benefits of High School students creating and developing a fundraising event for The Longest Day:

  • Make a difference - use your skills and talents
  • Event is based on YOUR time availability and interests
  • Develop or refine skills - marketing, recruitment, promotion, project planning
  • Demonstrates Leadership and Volunteering on college application with visible result
  • Recognition from the Alzheimer's Association Washington and Alaska Chapter

The Longest Day is the day with the most light - the summer solstice on June 20th. On this day, we recognize the 6 million Americans living with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. The Longest Day activity can take place anytime, any day - it works around YOUR schedule. From today through August 31st we are seeking High School students to turn a favorite activity or event into a fundraiser to raise research money to help end Alzheimer’s disease. The activity or event can anything YOU LOVE to do.

High School students across our states are invited to create a 'do-it-yourself' fundraiser based around YOUR schedule! You will be supported by our Volunteer Committee and a staff partner mentor. Students have created fundraisers around rowing, golf or mini-golf tournaments, volleyball, soccer, and video gaming. You can create something outside the box, like a water balloon fight, or belly flop contest. The key: create a fun event and have others join in!

Mission Statement

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.

Description

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.
