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.

As many of you know, Alzheimer’s disease is something close to my family. Sadly, we lost my grandmother who passed from a long battle against Alzheimer’s in September of 2015.

I found my love for backpacking in college and have been hiking all over the United States and New Zealand for the past few years. Now as I gear up to hike the Continental Divide trail, I wanted to make all of this walking more meaningful, to not only me, but to those around me.

As a tribute our grandfather, my brother Aaron and I will be running the Jungfrau Marathon in the Alps on September 12, 2015. We dedicate our run to our grandfather and the countless others who we cherish as healthy today but may one day be diagnosed with this disease.
