Do something AMAZING for Alzheimer’s research!
This September, we’ve been raising awareness about the work of world-class Canadian researchers so that they can continue investigating the cause, cure and treatment of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.
We asked you, “What would you ask a dementia researcher if you met one on the street, and will be sharing the answers to your top questions at the end of September.
We’ve also been extremely fortunate to have Les Dakens, Alzheimer Society board member and advocate, as our special matching donor. “I saw first-hand the impact Alzheimer’s disease had on my family and especially the life of my mother. I wanted to do something.”
Les did this by challenging Canadians to double the impact of their donation. For every donation made this September, Les agreed to match it until we meet our goal of $50,000.
This year, the Alzheimer Society Research Program awarded $4.2 million in research. This includes $3.9 million to fund 40 research projects across Canada, $30,000 in conference support and $1,025,000 to the Canadian Consortium for Neurodegeneration in Aging (CCNA), the first-of-its-kind, bringing together Canada’s brightest minds in neurodegenerative research.
This funding is essential to the success of some of these amazing researchers:
Making technology work for people living with dementia
How to build an Alzheimer drug molecule
