RACE: Jog Your Memory 5K
ABOUT: The Needham, Massachusetts-based Jog Your Memory Board (Jess and Bob Rice, Dick Caley, Michelle Taranto, Michelle Schmidt, Harry Stants, Ryan McKee and Kelsey Martin) holds an annual 5K run and 2-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. In 2017, a record 491 people participated in the organization’s most successful fundraiser yet. 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 $430,000 to research through CureAlz.
