Do you love to play golf, kayak, run, ski, or do yoga? Are you a part of a rowing or boating club? Do you love to play pickleball or tennis? Do you also have a passion to end Alzheimer's and all other dementia? We need YOU!

You are invited to join The Longest Day Volunteer Committee where you will play a vital role in team recruitment and cultivation, as well as marketing and promoting the event throughout our chapter territory. You can do this through your connections through your fitness activity such as organizing a charity tournament at your home club, asking your friends to join you for your own event, and helping to spread the word to other facilities you have connections with!

What is the Alzheimer's Association?
The Alzheimer's Association is fighting to end Alzheimer's disease through the advancement of research, by providing care and support for all affected, and reducing the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health. Over 130,000 people in Massachusetts alone are facing Alzheimer's disease.
We are looking for dedicated volunteers who are ready to help end Alzheimer's and all other dementia.

What is The Longest Day?
The Longest Day (or TLD) is a do-it-yourself fundraiser on the longest day of the year, the summer solstice. Together, we all come together to fight the darkness of Alzheimer's through a fundraising activity of our own choosing. In the Massachusetts/ New Hampshire chapter, our fundraisers host their own events such as a yoga fundraiser, hiking the white mountains, board game nights with family, a neighborhood cookout, walking a marathon, you name it!

How can I help?
Join the committee! We are looking for volunteers who are dedicated and want to help us grow and expand The Longest Day throughout MA and NH. This happens through recruitment, engagement and using your own connections and experiences to spread the word. The responsibilities of the committee member are mandatory monthly meetings (zoom), approximately 2-4 hours in addition per month working on tasks identified during the monthly meeting, being an advocate for the Alzheimer's Association mission with a 360-degree view, and helping to grow our TLD community through recruitment of new participants and volunteers.
I do want to emphasize the time commitment. We really need dedicated and consistent volunteers on our committee so we can keep up with the great momentum to bringing TLD all across MA and NH!

Where can I learn more?
