Our Mission
  • Cure-run.com started with a college kid eager to make a change. Its purpose is to raise awareness for Alzheimer's research and to give a positive outlook back to the community. We believe that there are "no excuses" and live openly to that motto. We run for friends, family, and ourselves. Each stride is a new step toward a better life. We run for hope.

What is Alzheimer's??? Minimize
Alzheimer’s disease is the most common cause of dementia, an illness with progressive loss in memory, thinking, behavior, and function. Advancing age is the biggest risk factor, though it is not a normal part of aging. There are over 5 million Americans with the disease now, and that number is expected to dramatically increase. At the present time, there is no cure for Alzheimer’s disease, but treatment of symptoms is available. Researchers continue to work on early identification of the illness as well as a cure. Chances are, you know someone who has been affected by this disease.
 

 
 
The USF Health Byrd Alzheimer’s Institute is the largest free-standing facility in the country dedicated to Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders. 
With a state-of-the-art building and a highly qualified team of researchers, doctors, clinicians and educators, the Institute is at the forefront of Alzheimer's research and care, and is right here in our backyard. As the Institute says, we will continue to Cure-Run “until Alzheimer’s is a memory!”
