Today marks the longest day of the year and the Alzheimer's Association is holding a special event called "The Longest Day" to raise awareness about the fight against the disease.  It's a campaign that's meant to symbolize how every day seems like the longest day for people with Alzheimer's and their caregivers.

A number of events will be held to help people raise awareness, including "The Longest Ride".

Riders will choose rides anywhere between two and 16 hours and will end the day with a celebration at Highlands Hollow in Boise's North End.

There will also be live music and a BBQ from five to 9:30 p.m. at Highlands Hollow on Wednesday, June 21st. It's not too late to help out. You can rent a Boise GreenBike at Highlands Hollow up until seven for an hour long ride. The cost is 30 dollars and that includes the BBQ and a brew. 


The money raised goes to the Alzheimer's Association.
