Hello All! I am again raising money for Alzheimer's research in my second year with BvB Dallas. This year I have stepped it up and am leading the fundraising effort for the Bru Crew team! Last year I raised over $3,000 making star club as a rookie. This year I want to double that to $6,000! All the money we raise is vital to eliminating Alzheimer's once and for all. BvB Dallas is a young professional organization that raises money for Alzheimer's Research. We spend all summer raising money and having fun for a great cause. At the end of a summer full of football practices, events, and lots of blood, sweat, and tears, we culminate the season with a flag football game at the Cottonbowl! Donations made to BvB stay right here in the metroplex and help fund research and support groups helping our community. A $25 donation gets a ticket to our game on August 11th!
Where does the money go?
The money goes to four beneficiaries that submit requests for the grants. BvB Dallas is very upfront with where the money goes and the impacts of your donations are real in the Dallas community and beyond. The four chosen this season are:
Center for BrainHealth: BvB will continue funding The Discovery Group, a strength-based program aiming to optimize the abilities of individuals with early stage Alzheimer’s disease.
UT Southwestern: BvB will continue our partnership with UT Southwestern through funding the Clinical Neuropsychology Alzheimer’s Fellowship, an intensive two-year program which provides an opportunity to rapidly develop expertise in the differential diagnosis and treatment of dementia.
The Senior Source: BvB is excited to announce a new beneficiary in The Senior Source. Our funding will support programs within the agency that directly serve older adults with dementia. This includes the Senior Companion Program, which places specially trained volunteers in the homes of older adults to provide personal assistance as well as respite care for the family caregiver.
The Alzheimer’s Association: BvB is pleased to award a grant to the Alzheimer’s Association to fund expanded outreach to diverse and lower income areas of South Dallas and adjacent neighborhoods where there may be higher rates of Alzheimer’s disease and an abundant need for assistance.
