Clear Thoughts Foundation was created in 2010 by DJ's two children: my two cousins Hayley Jameson Napotnik and Matthew Jameson. On May 25 I'm tackling my first 26.2 miles in his memory. Read more about the foundation below.
Clear Thoughts Foundation (CTF) was established in 2010, with the sole purpose to raise funds to discover drugs and therapeutics to stop the effects of dementia and eventually end this terrible disease. All of the founding members of CTF have had some personal experience with dementia or other related cognitive disorders and have been, simply put, disappointed with the lack of available and effective drugs in today’s market. We will raise funds to enable discovery of effective dementia drugs and/or therapeutics by removing the traditional barriers to drug discovery. CTF will fund research both nationally and internationally, targeted at developing and screening these drugs and/or therapeutics that are cutting-edge, innovative and promising.
