On Saturday, May 21st I am going to join Maria Shriver and Equinox in the first of its kind Move for Minds event in [insert city] to raise money to research women’s brains as a part of The Women’s Alzheimer’s Challenge. I will participate in brain-healthy physical fitness challenges, yoga and guided meditation then explore an intimate marketplace featuring cutting-edge research discussions, and educate myself with the latest information about nutrition and prevention from top experts in brain health.
I will be joining women and men across the country in six cities to raise money for The Women’s Alzheimer’s Challenge, a non-profit campaign from Maria Shriver and A Woman’s Nation. 100% of the money raised through Move for Minds will directly fund cutting edge research on women’s brains and Alzheimer’s.
Why women’s brains? Every 67 seconds a brain develops Alzheimer’s and two thirds of them belong to women. A woman in her early 60's is about two times as likely to develop Alzheimer’s than breast cancer over the remainder of her life. By 2050, 16 million brains will have fallen victim and a majority of them will belong to our mothers, sisters, daughters and friends.
By challenging myself on May 21st I am committing to change the future of Alzheimer’s disease. My personal fundraising goal is $500 and I am asking you, my friends and family, to help me reach it! Any donation - $5, $20, $50 – you make will help get me closer to my goal and will be greatly appreciated by me and the millions of families affected by this mind-blowing disease.
And supporting me could not be easier! Please click here to make a donation to my CrowdRise page at https://www.crowdrise.com/signin/form/sanfrancisco1/fundraiser/amygivens.
Thank you in advance for your support in wiping out Alzheimer’s,
