Tackling Alz - Year 10

Supporting: BvB Dallas 2017 Season for BvB Dallas

My Team: Team Blonde



I am so thrilled to be back for year 4 with BVB Dallas on Team Blonde! This season will be very near and dear to my heart as my family lost my sweet cousin Lori to this horrible disease in June of 2015. She was the light of our lives and we miss her sweet soul.

Did you know that Alzheimer's is the 6th leading cause of death in the United States, with more than 5.3 million American's living with this incurable disease. We fight not only to find a cure, but to care for those already affected by dementia or Alzheimer's disease.

The 10th annual powder-puff game is on Saturday, August 12, 2017 at The Cotton Bowl in Dallas. With a $25 donation towards Alzheimer’s Research and Awareness, you will receive a ticket to the big game, and a chance to help, and ultimately find a cure for the only cause of death among the top 10 in America that cannot be prevented, cured, or even slowed.

The funds raised this season will go to UT Southwestern, UTD Center for Brain Health, and the Baylor AT&T Memory Center. 

Please use the contribution box at the top right of this page to donate online quickly & securely. You will receive email confirmation of your donation, which can be used for tax purposes.

Thank you all for your love, generosity and support this summer!! 



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!
