Alzheimer’s CURE Foundation

Providence, RI

Mission

Focused 100% on the cure for Alzheimer's, the mission of the Alzheimer's CURE Foundation is to dramatically accelerate the cure for Alzheimer's disease by employing a unique, groundbreaking concept never before attempted in medical history. Our goal is to raise and award a $20 million dollar cash prize that will serve as the "Gold Medal" for the scientist(s) who discover the cure for this devastating disease. Cash prizes have been very successful and contributed to the rapid development of other areas in the past, such as aviation and space. More recently, a $10 million dollar cash prize was awarded when SpaceShipOne flew into suborbit. To our knowledge, we are the first to employ a major cash prize incentive in the area of medicine and our organization is making medical history world-wide. We believe that this competition will be a major driving force towards the cure. In addition, we support education through our Alzheimer's Scholarship Challenge and create public awareness through participation in health expos, speaking engagements as well as through our award-winning TV program, "A Tribute to Memories... The Race for the CURE!" that won the RI PEG award in 2009 in the "Best Health" category.
