Aces for Alzheimer’s is a high school student-run non-profit organization raising money for Alzheimer’s prevention research. Students organize events in various themes from history and games to further the search for a cure for Alzheimer’s disease.
The mission of the organization is to support medical research in the field of Alzheimer’s and neurodegenerative disease. Their support has been critical for the Foundation to meet its research goals.
A special thanks to the Altman Family for providing significant additional support, totaling over $1,000,000 contributed since 2015.
“To honor my Mother, we have held the ‘Memories for Mary’ event for the last 9 years to support Dr. Isaacson. Over $500,000 has funded this cutting-edge research, and I’ve been thrilled to see the amazing progress.
I’ve learned firsthand that Dr. Isaacson and his team urgently need more help to analyze years of additional data already collected. Please consider joining me by making a generous contribution to make an immediate impact and fast-forward these vital results.”
