During the month of June, Alzheimer’s volunteers hold events to bring awareness and fundraise for the cause. The Longest Day, June 21 — the summer solstice — people across the world will participate in fundraising activities. The funds remain in the local community. Together, the strength of our light will outshine the darkness of Alzheimer’s. The day with the most light is the day we fight.
Below are some of the local Lubbock events occurring on or around The Longest Day to benefit the Alzheimer’s Association’s efforts to provide care and support to families and fund research to find a cure. All are welcome to attend and cover these events. We have a local Alzheimer’s researcher at Texas Tech if you’re is interested in speaking with her.
The Alzheimer’s Association is the leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer’s care, support and research. Our vision is a world without Alzheimer’s disease®.
