6:00pm-9:00pm- Port Washington. "Laughter Yoga" at Rotary Park, East Grand Avenue at the Lakefront in Port Washington. NO YOGA EXPERIENCE REQUIRED!

The Longest Day is a team event to raise funds and awareness for the Alzheimer's Association®. Held annually on or near the summer solstice, the duration of this sunrise-to-sunset event symbolizes the challenging journey of those living with the disease and their caregivers. Teams are encouraged to create their own experience as they fundraise and participate in an activity they love to honor someone facing the disease.


Our signature event this year is "Laughter Yoga" at Rotary Park in Port Washington, WI on June 24th at 7 p.m., led by Debbie Leonard of ZuZu Pedals. Join us for this fun activity that is great for everyone! You do not have to ​know anything about Yoga to join in the laughter!
