Who We Are

The members of Young Champions care about Alzheimer’s disease. We’ve been touched by Alzheimer’s in our own lives, and we see the epidemic’s potential to affect everyone in our society, and deplete our public resources. As a group of young professionals who are engaged in our communities, we’re taking on the mission to work for the end of Alzheimer’s by increasing awareness of Alzheimer’s and related dementias, advocating for change at state and federal levels, and raising funds to provide hope for people affected.

 

How to Get Involved
