The Longest Day: Shining Through Alzheimer’s

The Longest Day, also known as the summer solstice, is the day with the most light. It is the day the Alzheimer’s Association calls on everyone to fight against Alzheimer’s disease by raising awareness and funds for care, support and research. On Thursday, June 20, Presbyterian Village North (PVN) and The Outlook at Windhaven (OAW) participated in The Longest Day with different events, including a special vendor and bake sale, a walk and a fundraising happy hour.

More than 75 PVN residents and teammates joined the “Longest Day Walk” around the PVN campus. The event kicked off at 9 a.m. with a warmup led by the PVN Wellness Team and the day also featured a festive wheelchair parade for residents and patients in Healthcare and the Transitional Rehab Center (TRC).

OAW VIPs and residents joined in by gathering at The Brass Tap in Plano for a social event, with 5% of sales going towards the cause. Our friends at The Brass Tap also made a generous donation towards fighting Alzheimer’s. Together, we’ll shine bright and beat the darkness of Alzheimer’s!
