In an effort to help find a cure for Alzheimer's, and help families affected by the disease, Jog Your Memory is run by a small, agile and dedicated Board, whose energies have been rewarded by the involvement and companionship of over a thousand runners as well as hundreds of generous donors. There is a driving sense of mission in all of us, Board and donors, all of whom have seen the destructiveness of Alzheimer’s in relatives and friends.
FINDING A CURE:
JYM is deeply honored to support the work that shows promise to an end of this disease. Over the past four years, over 80 percent of donations to JYM have gone to Cure Alzheimer’s Fund (CureAlz)- supported research, totaling over $400,000. Our board covers our minimal administrative needs while the cost of our centerpiece 5K run in Needham is self-supporting.

HELPING FAMILIES IN NEED:
For the past two years, JYM expanded its role to include support for caregivers, focusing a percentage of our generous donations to help those who suffer from the disease. Caregivers are frequently cited as overburdened with the difficult and all-consuming roles they play in their loved ones’ maintenance. Through applications to JYM, caregivers and families can seek grants that might support such needs as respite or aide assistance. By supporting families in need, JYM adds the immediate human factor to our greater drive to support important ongoing research.
