On the summer solstice, The Longest Day of the year, people across the world will do what they love—or what those affected by Alzheimer’s disease love to do. Hiking is among the most popular of The Longest Day activities! Teams have rallied to climb a favorite mountain, adopted local trails and “named” them for The Longest Day, and challenged one another by scheduling multiple individual hikes or climbs at the same time.
Alzheimer’s disease is a global health crisis. Worldwide, there are an estimated 47 million people living with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia, including 5.5 million in the United States and 400,000 here in Pennsylvania.
On The Longest Day, creativity is welcome as we work together to raise funds and awareness for the care and support of people with Alzheimer’s, while advancing research toward finding the first survivor of the disease.
