ST. LOUIS (KSDK) - For people facing Alzheimer's disease, every day is a demonstration of love, patience, strength and endurance - making every day seem as though it's never ending. On June 21, 2013, the longest day of the year, teams across the world will participate in sunrise-to-sunset relay endurance events to honor people with Alzheimer's and their families. The Longest Day® is the day to honor the strength, endurance and passion of those facing Alzheimer's every day.
