The Alzheimer’s Longest Day Event: 24 Hours of Story

Carpe Faces Longest Day

The number one goal of the Carpe Kilimanjaro Project is to encourage the sharing of personal stories and break the stigma that is associated with Alzheimer’s disease. Personal stories are powerful and the best tool for raising awareness, support, and the critical funding we need to fight the plight of this global epidemic that affects every single person on this planet.  Over the next several months, and to help promote the release of our feature documentary about Alzheimer’s later this Summer, we are collecting video stories from the front lines of the fight against this horrendous disease.  That means, we want you.

As part of the Alzheimer’s Longest Day event on June 21st, we will be sharing all of these videos with you, on our Carpe Kilimanjaro Facebook page.  Every hour, for 24 hours, we’ll post a new video, introducing you to someone who has been touched by this disease.  You will meet sons and daughters who have lost parents, caregivers, and patients living with Alzheimer’s. These unique stories are shared for the common goal of  taking this disease out of the closet and into the public eye so that those afflicted know  they are not alone and those holding the government and private purse strings dig deep and help us fight the fight.  

With your help, we will rally people from every part of the globe, and help make a difference.  Please help us spread the word about our project, our focus on hope, and  our goal of uniting the planet against Alzheimer’s. Here’s how you can lend your support:

1.  LIKE our Facebook page 

2.  Tell us how you would like to participate

3.  Follow us on Twitter

Step up.  Lend  your voice.  Be part of the answer.
