CRISTA Senior Living is proud to be partnering with the Alzheimer’s Association to bring their latest initiative to the great Pacific Northwest- titled “The Longest Day”. The Longest Day has been around for 2 years. CRISTA Senior Living is the first organization putting together The Longest Day as a fundraising event for the local chapter in Washington State. There are a few other small family teams signed up in our chapter area.
On The Longest Day, teams around the world come together to honor the strength, passion and endurance of those facing Alzheimer’s with a day of activity. Held on the summer solstice, June 21, 2014, this event calls on participants to raise funds and awareness to advance the efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association.” (ALz.org, 2014) The Longest Day consists of a 16 hour event, and our event at CRISTA will be called the “Run, Walk, Wag”, and will take place on our King’s High School, Woolsey stadium, track and field. For 16 continuous hours we will be inviting participants to run, walk, or wag the dog around our track in order to raise money for the Alzheimer’s Association.
CRISTA Senior Living passionate about seniors living with Dementia and Alzheimer’s, and we currently have 2 memory care units that are 100% occupied. I personally served as an activity coordinator in memory care and that is where my personal passion began to come to life. As far as Marketing Senior Living, aligning ourselves with a national cause just makes sense. This will give us valuable exposure and positioning within the community. Together, our goal is to raise $25,000.00 for the Alzheimer’s Association.
