What’s one thing that you never want to forget? Alzheimer’s disease is the largest underfunded public health threat today, and it’s growing at an epidemic rate. More awareness means more funding, and more support for those affected. Help us spread the word and put an end to Alzheimer’s. Share and post your videos to tell the Alzheimer’s Association of Massachusetts your “one thing.”

Turkey Trot

“A Thanksgiving 5-mile run and 2-mile fun run/walk that is sending the message of hope to those suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, as well as to those caring for them. All proceeds go directly to the Alzheimer’s Association, MA/NH Chapter. The money raised supports Alzheimer’s research, patient and family care, and educational programming. ”

Join hundreds of riders from across the country at the 16th annual Memory Ride for Alzheimer’s Research, and cycle in our Family Ride, 30, 62, or 100 miles for a cure to end Alzheimer’s disease.

The Noonan family, whose story was featured in PBS’s Emmy-winning series, “The Forgetting,” struggled with multiple cases of early-onset Alzheimer’s disease within their immediate family over several generations. Hoping to save other families from experiencing this devastation, the Noonan’s founded the Memory Ride for Alzheimer’s Research.

Over the past 15 years, Memory Ride has raised over $2.7 million to fund critical Alzheimer’s disease research, through the Alzheimer’s Associations research grants program.  Many in the research community believe the ability to treat or even prevent Alzheimer’s disease may be possible in the next decade with continued funding for research.
