More info on the Longest Day:
The Longest Day, June 21st, is the day of the year with the most light — the summer solstice. Y66MSA is participating in The Longest Day, a fundraising event to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association. Today, an estimated 50 million people worldwide are living with Alzheimer's or other dementias, including more than 5 million Americans. In the United States alone, 16 million friends and family members are providing their care. We must take action now, or these numbers will continue to rise.
Stand up to the darkness of Alzheimer’s and make a donation today to help the Alzheimer's Association support all those facing the disease. Thank you!
