Join Us for The Longest Day® Field Day - June 21

Alzheimer's is often referred to as "the long goodbye" because of its slow nature and lasting emotional and physical drain. In honor of people fighting the disease and those who love and care for them, the Alzheimer's Association encourages the public to host a variety of events on the longest day of the year - the summer solstice, June 21 - while raising funds and awareness to advance Alzheimer's care, support and research.


Consequently, Recreational Services has partnered with Employee Wellness to sponsor The Longest Day® at Kent State for faculty, staff, students and the Kent community. We will be hosting a full day of activities scheduled from sun up to sun down, including a special "Field Day" at the outdoor pavilion/field, 1575 Johnston Drive in Kent from 11:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m.

Fun-filled events at Field Day include:

  • Corn hole
  • Bulzibucket
  • Hula hoop ring toss
  • Football throw
  • Ladder golf
  • Giant Jenga
  • Giant checkers, and more.

Employee Wellness will also be providing an eldercare specialist, Kelsey Loushin, from IMPACT Solutions during our Field Day event. Kelsey will be available from 11:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. at the Pavilion. She will provide resources for employees and discuss how IMPACT Solutions, our employee assistance program, can provide support to employees and their families in need of assistance with eldercare, memory loss, dementia, Alzheimer's and more.

Light refreshments will also be provided to keep you hydrated and energized. Dress for the occasion and come when you can for as long as you can. Make sure you stop by the Employee Wellness table to sign in and enter your name in our prize raffle.

For complete information on all the activities being offered throughout the day, Wellness Your Way points that can be earned, and how to register, please visit our Longest Day webpage for TEAM KENT STATE.
