Summer is almost here, and it’s time to launch our annual summer campaign during which we commit 100% of all donations to Alzheimer’s research from now until September 2nd.

We need your help in raising money and building awareness about the Fisher Center for Alzheimer’s Research Foundation’s world renowned research. 100% of every dollar donated to this mission will help Nobel Laureate Dr. Paul Greengard, Director of the Fisher Center for Alzheimer’s Research, and over 50 scientists as they accelerate the pace of future Alzheimer's disease research and continue their groundbreaking discoveries that are changing the course of Alzheimer’s investigations worldwide.

How can YOU help? You can help spread the word. We are launching a powerful social media movement that will drive awareness of our mission. All we ask is that you take a few minutes out of your day to:

  1. Tweet on Twitter about our mission. www.twitter.com/fishercenter
  2. Friend/Like us on Facebook and Causes.com. www.facebook.com/ALZResearch
  3. Join our 411,000 members on Causes.com. www.causes.com/alzheimers
  4. Share this information with your friends and family. Ask them to do the same.
  5. Donate if you can.

We are the only Alzheimer’s nonprofit to have earned a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator 8 times in the past 12 years. I hope that you will join me and take the Alzheimer’s Challenge today.

Share the cause and Be part of the cure. To learn more about our mission, go to www.ALZinfo.org/team
