Jog Your Memory Board

The Needham, Massachusetts-based Jog Your Memory Board (Jess and Bob Rice, Dick Caley, Michelle Vitagliano Taranto, Michelle Schmidt and Harry Stants) holds an annual 5K run and 2-mile walk to raise money to eradicate Alzheimer’s disease. Jess’ mother was diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s in 2007, inspiring Jess and Bob to found the nonprofit Jog Your Memory Inc. In 2016, a record 415 people participated in the organization’s most successful fundraiser yet. Said Jess, “We are so lucky to have a board composed of people who are near and dear to our hearts, our cause and our mission. Cure Alzheimer's Fund continues to inspire us to do more, do better and press on. We are always looking forward...onward and upward.” The group donated $100,000 to research in 2016.
