Cure Alzheimer's Fund has raised over $50 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.
This summer, instead of participating in the Hood River, Oregon endurance kiteboarding race (a cancer survivor fundraiser, which I was a part of the last two years) I decided to fundraise for Cure Alzheimer’s Fund (www.curealz.org), an organization at the forefront of research to find a cure for Alzheimer’s disease. With this effort, I honor my father, Charlie Collier, 69, who was diagnosed with early-onset dementia and Alzheimer’s several years ago.
Paul Coopersmith has been running Coopersmith's One-of-a-Kind Tours in the UK, Western Europe, Japan and New Zealand since 1984. His tours are targeted towards travelers who don't consider themselves the typical "tour types" - they consist of small groups and cover limited geographical areas in order to spend ample time in each location, focusing on gardens, stately homes and fine arts.
