Tackling Alzheimer’s with the Blondes VS. Brunettes Fundraiser
Blondes vs. Brunettes was created by a group of young professional women in Washington DC. Sara Abbott and her sister Kate Stukenberg were the original founders, who eventually grew the game to Texas, and in 2013 Boston University will host the first Blondes vs. Brunettes game in Boston. The event, in an effort to raise awareness for Alzheimer’s, has spread to more than 20 cities, while raising well over $3 million for the cause.
Blondes vs. Brunettes is a volunteer-driven active event for women that brings passion and spirit together to benefit the Alzheimer’s Association. The ladies will compete in a fun flag football game, preceded by a couple days of fund raising, socializing, and other events to increase awareness of the event and cause. So, raise awareness, have fun, get active, and help others along the way!
The funds raised through Blondes vs. Brunettes benefit the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association.
We strive 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.
