Las Vegas (KLAS) — Sunday, June 20th is the summer solstice, the longest day of the year. The Alzheimer’s Disease Association chooses the day to raise awareness of people with Alzheimer’s disease and their caregivers.
The reason why days are chosen is that every day can feel like the longest day when tackling the challenge of dementia.
Thanks to the heat wave of Las Vegas, you can take part in a fun challenge called “You Bet Your Ice”.
It’s happening at the Las Vegas Aviators game on Sunday. In fact, every ticket sends $ 5 to the Alzheimer’s Association.
With a small donation, you can bet the time it will take for a 20-pound block of ice sitting in the hot sun near the third base of Las Vegas Ballpark to melt.

Kat Hartley and Nancy Nelson of the Alzheimer’s Association say challenge is a way to find joy and fun.
