Alzheimer's Association Encourages Participation in Longest Day

Bradley DiTeresi

Bradley DiTeresi earned his master of business administration in finance from University of Missouri-Kansas City in 2007 and then went on to work in the wealth management field. Outside of work, Bradley DiTeresi stays involved with several charitable organizations, including the Alzheimer’s Association.

As the leading voluntary health organization dedicated to Alzheimer’s care and research, the Alzheimer’s Association offers global, national, and local support. It provides a 24/7 helpline, face-to-face support groups, and online message boards to help people cope. The organization has invested more than $385 million for more than 2,500 research investigations since 1982.

Since the Alzheimer’s Association is a nonprofit, it relies on financial donations from individuals. One fundraising event it sponsors is the Longest Day, which occurs nationwide on every June 21. This day, which is the summer solstice, allows people to team up with the organization to raise funds and awareness for care and support while advocating for additional research. Those wishing to participate can do the following:

* Select an activity from the organization’s webpage, and choose a way to participate. They can start a team, host an event, or register as an individual.

* Raise money for Alzheimer’s research. The organization can help with tools and tips to procure more funds. Promote the event, and encourage people to donate.

* Participate in the event. Share photos through social media with the hashtags #TheLongestDay and #ENDALZ.
