Join the fight to save memories!
On September 24, the Valley Girls will participate in the 2023 Marr Family Maine Marathon to raise money to support the Josephine and John Marr Alzheimer’s Research Fund at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. The fund directly supports novel and early-stage research aimed at preventing Alzheimer’s disease. We are joining in honor of loved ones whom we have lost and those still with us and currently battling this awful disease.
We now know that Alzheimer’s begins 20 years of more before the onset of symptoms. The Marr family – together with world-renowned researchers at the Brigham – are focused on finding a way to stop Alzheimer’s disease altogether. Backed by more than 30 years of research, Dr. Reisa Sperling and her team are pioneering innovative approaches to advance the prevention and treatment of this devasting disease, including world-wide prevention clinical trials.
In nine years, the Marr Fund team has already made a great impact on furthering Alzheimer’s prevention research, most notably raising $1.9 million through the Maine Marathon event and serving as a catalyst for many millions in additional support.
Thank you for joining us in this fight to prevent Alzheimer’s. Together we can make a difference – now and for future generations.
