Cure Alzheimer's Fund has raised over $33 million for Alzheimer's disease research — and we couldn't have done it without the support of amazing individuals like the ones featured here. Our Heroes are fundraising for us all over the globe by organizing everything from races to tournaments to concerts to benefit Cure Alzheimer's Fund.
My name is Kaely McDougall. I am 24 and currently living in Huntington Beach, CA. My dad got me hooked on distance running about 10 years ago when we completed our first race together. Since then, he has lost both of his parents to Alzheimer's Disease and there are countless other friends and family members that have been impacted by the devastation of this condition.
We wanted to include a donation option in lieu of wedding gifts and are very happy to support a fund that helps progress towards a cure for Alzheimer’s. It was a natural choice for us after seeing and experiencing the impacts of this disease on our families. While there are many outstanding organizations we could support, the Cure Alzheimer’s fund stood out to us. 100% of the donations go to research on finding a cure, and all administrative costs are covered by the founders and board.
Quentin “The Hero” Henry, 25, of West Monroe, Louisiana, is an up-and-coming mixed martial arts fighter who supports a different charity every time he fights. Last November, he wore purple shorts with the Cure Alzheimer’s Fund logo on them for one of his fights—available for viewing in 40 million homes. “I have a platform where I can raise awareness for different causes, and it’s my responsibility to do something good with that platform,” said Quentin. “I help charities by donating an advertising spot on my shorts for free. I always want to help people who are struggling.
