Each year, the Alzheimer’s Association celebrates the longest day of year by spreading awareness and raising funds for Alzheimer’s research.
On the first day of summer, June 21st, the Alzheimer’s Association asks you to join them in the many ways to celebrate and also show support for those with Alzheimer’s.
Around the world, people take part in fundraising activities on the Summer Solstice to spread awareness about Alzheimer’s and also to raise money to continue the Alzheimer’s Association’s efforts to conduct more research to learn more about Alzheimer’s.
