In Memory

What better way to pay your respect to your loved one than to give a life-affirming gift in their memory to research into the cause of Alzheimer’s disease? The bereavement need not be recent - entries can commemorate someone who died many years ago. Gifts in memory can be made online or by mail. If you wish to set up a memorial page for a loved one, please contact us.

Our Heroes

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.

I am raising money for the cure of Alzheimer’s by climbing Mont Blanc in Switzerland in memory of my Grandmother, who frequently cited Geneva as one of her favorite cities in the world. Mont Blanc is a majestic mountain and the tallest in the Alps, standing 15,771 feet.

Paul Coopersmith

Paul Coopersmith has been running Coopersmith's Garden Tours in the UK 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.

My name is Terry Lee. My mother and grandmother both died of Alzheimer's Disease and I witnessed what a horrible fate this can be for a person, their family and friends. Today, 5.3 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s disease. By 2050, up to 16 million will have the disease.  Payments for care in 2012 were estimated to be $200 billion. Without a cure, these figures will nearly triple by the year 2050.
