finding a cureWe seek to raise money for diseases that currently do not have cures such as diabetes, asthma, dementia, Alzheimer’s, cystic fibrosis, etc. We will raise money for research to further the progress in developing a cure. We plan to start with an organization known as the Alzheimer’s Association, the leading voluntary health org in Alzheimer’s care, support, and research. Although 10% of people over the age of 65 have Alzheimer’s disease, and as many as 50% of people over 85 have it, research is incredibly underfunded. In addition, the the number of people with the disease doubles every 5 years beyond age 65, yes it is still largely overlooked and ignored. We hope that this club can raise money and awareness for the study and support of those affected by Alzheimer’s and other diseases.

Some of our club activities will include creating and planning various fundraisers.
