The Longest Day

For the third consecutive year, the departments of Recreational Services and Employee Wellness have come together to sponsor The Longest Day® at Kent State, in conjunction with the Alzheimer's Association.

Alzheimer's disease 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 events on the longest day of the year - the summer solstice - while raising funds and awareness to advance Alzheimer's care, support and research.

We have a full week of activities planned leading up to the summer solstice on June 20. Read on to learn about the many ways you can participate in this special week.
