BENEFITING: ALZHEIMERS DRUG DISCOVERY FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: ALZHEIMERS DRUG DISCOVERY FOUNDATION
On November 5th 2017 I will be running in my first ever marathon! Having run 4 half marathons and countless 10km, this will be first attempt at 42km. Fellow team member Joel Kennedy and I have a joint goal to raise $10,000 for Alzheimer's research. You can follow our training regime and joint financial target on our dashboard
Founded in 1998, the Alzhemier's Drug Discovery Foundation (ADDF) provides funding to leading scientists who are conducting the most promising, innovative Alzheimer’s drug research worldwide. The mission of the ADDF is to rapidly accelerate the discovery of drugs to prevent, treat and cure Alzheimer's disease.
Whilst great strides are being made in this space, Alzheimers currently remains the only top cause of death in America & Australia that cannot be prevented, cured or slowed. With 1 in 3 of seniors who die will be suffering from a Dementia related illness.
With funding, innovation will forge a path for conquering this debilitating disease!
To assist with this cause. I am seeking companies or Individuals to sponsor my running efforts!
