Thrive Wellness: Join PSL on June 21 for "The Longest Day"

June 21, 2022, in the northern hemisphere, marks the summer solstice, the longest day of the year. According to Britannica, “During the summer solstice, the path of the sun in the sky is farthest north in the Northern Hemisphere and travels the longest path through the sky, and that day, therefore, has the most daylight.” “Each year, the Alzheimer's Association promotes the summer solstice and “The Longest Day” with the saying, “The day with the most light is the day we fight.” On June 21, thousands of participants from across the world come together to fight the darkness of Alzheimer's through an activity of their choice. Together, they use their creativity and passion to raise funds and awareness for the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association.”
