WHY WE EXIST
Neuro Endurance Sports Foundation was started with the hope of honoring family members and friends afflicted with neurodegenerative disorders.
As a Private Foundation, Neuro Endurance Sports Foundation seeks to increase awareness, foster enthusiasm, and support for brain science through community activity and sports. Neuro Endurance Sports Foundation has a niche, catering to Alzheimer’s, brain cancer, and Parkinson’s disease.
Endurance sports for enduring minds.
Proceeds from fundraising and donations are distributed to organizations supporting our mission as selected by the Board of Directors.
It is important to note that awareness for Alzheimer’s, brain cancer, and Parkinson’s awareness come at different times of the year, reflected below. These dates are also different than when Brain Awareness Week is supported in mid-March of each year.
