On June 21, 2019 – the summer solstice and the day with the most light – Georgia residents will join advocates across the world to participate in The Longest Day® to fight the darkness of Alzheimer’s through an activity of their choice. Together, they will use their creativity and passion to raise funds and awareness to advance Alzheimer’s Association® care, support and research programs. The event coincides with Alzheimer's & Brain Awareness Month® in June.
Activities for Douglasville will be from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., on June 22, 2019 on O’Neal Plaza in downtown Douglasville. The Honorable David Scott will be presenting D13, a proclamation for Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month. There will be yoga, line dancing, raffles, music and food vendors. The event is wheelchair friendly.
On The Longest Day, participants will choose an activity – biking, hiking, playing bridge, swimming, knitting and more – to shine a light on the more than 5 million Americans living with Alzheimer’s disease and the more than 16 million family members and friends providing care and support. In Georgia alone, there are more than 150,000 people living with Alzheimer’s and more than 533,000 family members and friends caring for them.
