After moving to Dallas in July 2015, I tried out for BvB with the simple aspirations of meeting new people and playing my favorite sport. Little did I know at the time, I was joining one of the most successful and rewarding grass-roots charity movements of our time. A physician by day, skeptic by nature, I don't drink from the charity Kool-Aid easily. But BvB Dallas isn't just another "charity"; it is a crew of enthusiastic people raising money for real, local academic programs and bringing about real, tangible effects in research and social support for patients and families right here in the heart of DFW.  BvB has quickly proved to be a cause worth sweating and bleeding and begging for. 

About

BvB Dallas is a young-professionals organization dedicated to raising money and awareness for Alzheimer's disease. Each year, the organization hosts a number of fundraising events including happy hours, pool parties, charity dinners, a benefit concert and a powder-puff football game at the Cotton Bowl. Founded in 2008 by a group of motivated women, BvB Dallas is a way to honor and remember loved ones who suffered or are suffering from Alzheimer's and related diseases. BvB Dallas has experienced a blitz of success, by raising over $2.8 million dollars and recruiting over 1,000 volunteers in nine years. 


A staggering 5 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s Disease today, which cost the nation over $236 BILLION in 2016 alone.  Your donation to BvB Dallas will go directly to those living with Alzheimer’s, and those fighting to find a cure. Thank you for your help to TACKLE ALZHEIMER’S FOREVER!
