The Alzheimer's Association recognizes that some teams/individuals may have conflicts or challenges with participating on the summer solstice, Thursday, June 21. As a participant in The Longest Day, you can fundraise and honor those affected by Alzheimer's in a way, and on a day, that works with your schedule. What will you do?
