2018 Community Partnership: EIA & Alzheimer’s Association of San Antonio
The mission of the Alzheimer’s Association is to eliminate Alzheimer’s Disease through the advancement of research, to provide and enhance care and support for all affected, and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health.
The Longest Day is all about love. Love for all those affected by Alzheimer’s disease. On the summer solstice (6/21/2018), team up with the Alzheimer’s Association and select any activity you love — or an activity loved by those affected — to help end Alzheimer’s. Together, we will raise funds and awareness for care and support while advancing research toward the first survivor of Alzheimer’s.
