Our Heroes are fundraising for us all over the globe by organizing everything from races to tournaments to concerts to benefit Cure Alzheimer's Fund.

Hello.  We are a group of friends consisting of four sisters, one cousin, and one neighbor.  Our Grandpa had Alzheimer’s ever since we were little.  He lived with it for 7 years before he passed away, on the morning of March 19th 2017.

Whit Collier

This summer, instead of participating in the Hood River, Oregon endurance kiteboarding race (a cancer survivor fundraiser, which I was a part of the last two years) I decided to fundraise for Cure Alzheimer’s Fund (www.curealz.org), an organization at the forefront of research to find a cure for Alzheimer’s disease. With this effort, I honor my father, Charlie Collier, 69, who was diagnosed with early-onset dementia and Alzheimer’s several years ago.
