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 $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.

John M. Ferrero, Jr.

Known as the beloved “man on the corner” because he waved to everyone driving by, John Ferrero Jr. of Crystal Lake, Illinois, struggled with Alzheimer’s; he died in March. To honor his memory, his granddaughters and their friends came together in August for a two-day bake sale, car wash and lemonade stand to raise money for research.

Running Road Trip

The Running Road Trip is a team of four recent college graduates who will be spending their summer raising money to fight Alzheimer's disease. They will be traversing the contiguous United States, visiting and running in every state in order to raise awareness and raise money for Alzheimer's disease research.

Manny Reiser

Instead of sending holiday gifts to his clients as a thank you for their business, The Reiser Family Foundation, founded by Manny and his wife Rachel, made donations to CureAlz in his clients’ names, which he communicated in a special holiday card.

Whit Collier

This summer, instead of participating in the Hood River, Oregon endurance kiteboarding race (a cancer survivor fundraiser, which I was a part of the last two years) I decided to fundraise for Cure Alzheimer’s Fund. My journey will take me to the outer reaches of the Oregon coast to Floras Lake, where I’ll challenge myself to cover 100 miles on the water over a three day stretch.

Mongol Musketeers

There are three necessities for undertaking a rally across 20,000 miles of tarmac, mountains, desert and steppe: 1) an intrepid and inquisitive companion, to share the joys and burdens of the journey, 2) a valiant steed (or car) to carry you along the way, and 3) a noble cause to keep spurring you towards the finish line.

Team Wagonna

Team Wagonna Get There will be participating in this year's Mongol Rally. In the name of charity we will be driving from London to Ulan-Ude starting July 27, 2017. To make this even more challenging, we will be driving a ridiculously small vehicle on rough terrain for over 40 days.
