Our Heroes

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.

Gabrielle DeWeck

Gabrielle, a high school senior, created a benefit dance performance, dedicated to her grandmother and the millions of other people who suffer from Alzheimer's disease.  

Stef Desmond

Stef Desmond of Boston usually goes away for her birthday. But this year, in honor of her 30th birthday, she decided to do something different. “I asked my family and friends to donate $30, or whatever they could, to fund Alzheimer’s research. I wanted to raise awareness for the disease and raise money for such an important cause.” Her father was diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s disease and Stef is committed to making a difference. She raised $1,200 for research.

Nicole D'Amico

Wanting to honor her grandmother, Nicole has chosen to create beautiful custom jewelry to not only adorn women of all ages, but to help raise Alzheimer’s awareness.
