Alzheimer’s Association RivALZ is a volunteer-driven event that engages young professionals in friendly but fierce flag football games around the country. The three primary goals of the RivALZ initiative are to:
– Help families across the country by continuing to provide and enhance programs focusing on education and support.
– Advance critical research studies into methods of treatment, prevention and ultimately, a cure.
– Speak up for the needs and rights of those facing Alzheimer’s through our public policy initiatives.
On the field, Team Brunettes took victory for the second year in a row over Team Blondes with a 28-22 showing.
