The Catchathon is COMING! 🥁 🤸

The time has come for the Second International Catchathon of Stall Catchers

We will join together as a planet again, this time on World Alzheimer's Day, to fight a disease that has no ethnic or geographic boundaries.

The catchathon will run for 48 hours, from the moment World Alzheimer's Day (September 21st) begins somewhere on the planet to the moment it ends in the last time zone: 10:00UTC, September 20 to 10:00UTC, September 22.

(Click here to find out when does the catchathon begin in your timezone.)

You can participate individually or with a team at any time, and we especially encourage you to join the Golden Hour which will take place from 17:00UTC, September 21.

The Golden Hour will be streamed live, pulling together video feeds from teams across the world. We will have our scientists and honored guests on air too! You will be able to watch the live stream on our Facebook page: facebook.com/eyesonalz
