June 20, 2016 was an important day, especially for those who are impacted by Alzheimer’s disease, as it is known as “The Longest Day.” The Longest Day is a day designated to Alzheimer’s disease awareness, and it provides a platform across the world for fundraising in support of the Alzheimer’s Association. People can showed their support for Alzheimer’s disease by wearing purple on The Longest Day.

Although, there are many people who are personally affected by the disease, Natausha is an ActioNeter who understands this disease firsthand as her Grandmother Ann suffers from a similar ailment. Wanting to make a difference for both her family and for the Alzheimer’s Association, Natausha pledged to raise awareness and asked her family to don purple attire on The Longest Day. When Natausha’s coworkers learned of her involvement in The Longest Day, they wanted to show their support for Natausha, her family, and her efforts for raising Alzheimer’s disease awareness by wearing purple. It’s important to remember that ActioNet is a family, and we should will support each other in times of need. The picture shows Natausha and many of her coworkers wearing purple on The Longest Day, June 20, 2016.
