RACE: Jog Your Memory 5K
ABOUT: The Needham, Massachusetts-based Jog Your Memory Board (Jess and Bob Rice, Dick Caley, Harry Stants, Kelsey Martin, Ryan McKee, Kevin McKeon, and Sarah Gibbons) holds an annual 5K run and 1.5-mile walk to raise money to eradicate Alzheimer’s disease.
Jess’ mother was diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s in 2007, inspiring Jess and Bob to found the nonprofit Jog Your Memory Inc. Said Jess, “We are so fortunate to have a board comprised of people who are near and dear to our hearts, our cause, and our mission. Cure Alzheimer’s Fund continues to inspire us to do more, do better, and press on.”
Since inception in 2014, the group has donated over $838,000 to research through CureAlz, and has raised over $200,000 for their Caregiver Grant Fund, a grant designated to helping caregivers and their families as they cope with this difficult disease.
