ORGANIZER: BIG D POWDERPUFF TACKLING ALZHEIMERS INC
Welcome to my fundraising page! I'm playing Defense on Team Blonde this year, and I need your help to help us tackle Alzheimers!
Where will your donation go?
Baylor AT&T Memory Center: Baylor will be conducting research with the goal of developing a blood or urine screen to detect Alzheimer’s vulnerability years before symptoms occur.
UT Southwestern: BvB Dallas is funding a Clinical Neuropsychology Fellowship for the Alzheimer’s Disease Center at UT Southwestern Medical Center.
Center for BrainHealth: Findings from the Center for BrainHealth’s 2014 study, partially funded by BvB Dallas, suggest that strategy-based mental training may have far-reaching positive impacts. We are again supporting this study in its second phase, as it explores the impact of brain stimulation and utilizes advanced imaging techniques to understand the brain's response to training.
How much have y'all raised in the past?
BvB Dallas has been able to raise over $2.3 Million Dollars for Alzheimer’s research and care in North Texas over the past 8 years. But it’s not enough. A staggering 5 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s Disease today, which will cost the nation over $236 BILLION in 2016 alone. Your donation to BvB Dallas will go directly to those living with Alzheimer’s, and those fighting to find a cure.
What is BvB Dallas?
BvB Dallas is a young-professional organization that hosts a powder-puff football game (Saturday, August 13th, 2016) for a day of fun, fellowship, philanthropy and enjoyment as a way of raising money for Alzheimer’s research and awareness. Founded by sisters whose father was afflicted by Alzheimer’s, BvB is a personal way for young professionals across the country to raise awareness, funds and support to TACKLE ALZHEIMER’S FOREVER.
