Alzheimer’s & Brain Awareness Month and The Longest Day
June 21, 2018
Go purple during Alzheimer’s & Brain Awareness Month. Raise awareness with the movement’s signature color
and learn all the ways you can go purple with the Alzheimer’s Association at alz.org/abam.
On Thursday, June 21, 2018, Portland residents will join advocates around the world to participate in The Longest
Day®, a day to honor all those affected by Alzheimer’s disease.
Held annually on the summer solstice, participants will do what they love – biking, hiking, playing bridge,
swimming, knitting and more – to honor a caregiver, someone living with the disease, or someone they’ve lost to
the disease. Together, participants will raise funds and awareness to advance critical Alzheimer’s Association®
care, support and research programs.
