Making an impact

COVID 19 has made Neuro Endurance Sports Foundation realize virtual activities are just as important as in-person ones.  2021 was a huge year for the foundation and we could not have done it without you.  The foundation was able to raise over $1900 for the The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research and the Alzheimer’s Association.

 

In 2022 we are looking forward to increasing awareness, foster enthusiasm, and support for combatting Alzheimer’s, brain cancers, and Parkinson’s disease.

2021-2022 RACE LINEUP FOR THE FOUNDATION

Supersapiens IRONMAN World Championship, St. George is an iconic race where athletes from all over the world come to prove themselves against the world's best. Athletes soak up the crisp dry air, stunning scenery of the red rocks, as they strive for the coveted Kona slots. The strength of the expected field will be first class.  The best of the best are here.  After a 10-year hiatus, the IRONMAN St George is back and stronger than ever. Event link.

The Longest Day is the day with the most light - the summer solstice.  On June 21, people from across the world will fight darkness of Alzheimer’s through a fundraising activity of their choice.

Alzheimer’s disease is the sixth-leading cause of death in the United States. More than 6 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s, and over 11 million are acting as their caregivers.  Family members of those associated with Neuro Endurance Sports Foundation are no exception.  Alzheimer's and dementia have negatively impacted our families.

We are going the distance for all those affected while raising funds and awareness to advance research toward the first survivor of Alzheimer’s. 

Right now, there is no shortage of ideas in Alzheimer’s research — only dollars. But together, we can help change that. 100 percent of the funds raised from this event will go toward the Association’s efforts to discover methods of treatment and prevention for Alzheimer's and other dementias.
