ALZ Stars/Race for the Brain Team

Thanks to everyone who helped make this year's event such a success. Ninety-six runners and walkers participated in the 2016 Flying Pig Marathon, raising nearly $32,000 for the Alzheimer's Association of Greater Cincinnati.

We race for a cause. We race for those children whose parents cannot remember their names. We race for those spouses who slowly watch the ones they love slip away. Whatever your reason, we race to save the brain.

Perhaps you are looking for a way to honor a family member, support needed Alzheimer caregiver programs or simply reach a fitness goal. When you join the ALZ Stars/Race for the Brain Team, you are racing and raising money for the estimated 5.2 million Americans that are currently living with Alzheimer's disease and the 10 million baby boomers that are expected to develop this fatal disease. Unlike other charitable teams, you will not be signing a contract, but simply giving a pledge to raise funds and awareness in the fight against Alzheimer's disease.
