100% of your donation directly funds dementia research at Northwestern University’s Mesulam Cognitive Neurology and Alzheimer’s Disease Center

To make a donation: Alzheimer’s Research and Education Fund – Run4papa

Does any part of my donation cover your travel expenses or marathon fees?

Absolutely not.  I believe 100% of your donation should fund dementia research and cover all of my own travel and race expenses.

Specifically, your donations will help:

  • Fund the construction of a world-class center devoted to superb patient care, cutting edge research, and supportive services for cognitive illnesses such as Alzheimer’s and other related dementia
  • Fund a state of the art brain imaging study to detect potential causes of dementia while people are ALIVE
  • Develop supportive programs for newly diagnosed patients and families
  • Create and distribute educational materials on PPA to physicians who are unfamiliar with the disease
  • Research state-of-the-art brain imaging techniques in people with PPA
  • Recruit research participants from across the country to participate in the CNADC’s longitudinal “Language in PPA” study
  • Investigate underlying disease mechanisms that will help us eventually find a cure
