The Alzheimer's Association MA/NH Chapter is proud to announce that members of our "Run to End Alzheimer's - Boston 2017" team are running in the 121st Boston Marathon® on April 17, 2017. The Boston Marathon is the world's oldest annual marathon and ranks as one of the world's most prestigious road racing events.
Alzheimer's disease is the 6th leading cause of death in the United States, and affects millions of people daily. More than 5 million Americans are living with Alzheimer's. Currently, there is no cure. The first survivor of Alzheimer's is out there, but we won't get there without you.
In 2016 the RUN TRI RIDE to End Alzheimer's raised over $1.2 million to support programs and services for those impacted with the disease. The 2017 Boston Marathon team is determined to continue this tradition of success, as we celebrate our 16th year!
