Red Sox Join Fight to Cure Alzheimer’s Disease
On Tuesday, June 5th, the Boston Red Sox hosted Cure Alzheimer’s Fund at the team’s game against the Detroit Tigers to raise awareness about the disease and efforts to identify effective treatment and prevention strategies.
The event included a ceremony on the field at Fenway Park honoring:
The first pitch was thrown by Dr. Rudy Tanzi, who is the Vice-Chair and Director of the Genetics and Aging Research Unit at Massachusetts General Hospital and Chair of the Cure Alzheimer’s Fund Research Leadership Group. Following the pitch, 6 youngsters affiliated with Cure Alzheimer’s Fund were on field to announce PLAY BALL!
Additionally, Board Co-Chairs Jeff Morby and Henry McCance, along with Dr. Rudy Tanzi, were interviewed on NESN before the game.
The event helped us to honor representatives of the research community who are focused on the science that could lead to a cure or effective treatments. This was a special gift that provided us an opportunity to educate Red Sox fans on how they can be a part of the fight to cure Alzheimer’s disease. All of us at Cure Alzheimer’s Fund are grateful to the Red Sox for their generosity and support.
