A heartfelt thanks to all who attended the 2015 Alzheimer's Association Reason to Hope at the Salt Lake City Downtown Marriott at City Creek. We were honored to have Stan Lockhart deliver the keynote speech and bring attention to the devastating reality of Alzheimer's disease and related dementias. Our thanks to Shauna Lake, who graciously gave her time and talent to help us to reach our goal of getting our message into the communities we serve and raising funds for the critical work we do statewide.

How to get started:
1. Grab your friends
2. Do what you love-choose an activity for your team
3. Raise money- once you have registered, check out the participant center for tips.
4. Plan your day
5. Celebrate at sunset!
Blondes vs. Brunettes
Alzheimer's Association Blondes vs. Brunettes is a volunteer event driven by young women that brings the passion and spirit of young community leaders together to support the Alzheimer’s Association. The event is an organized flag football game in which the two participating teams are divided based on the age-old rivalry between blondes and brunettes (Note: Redheads are “free agents,” permitted to play for the team of their choice). Funds raised at Blondes vs. Brunettes events benefit the care, support, advocacy and research efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association. Blondes vs Brunettes in coming to Utah soon!
Do you enjoy planning events for family, friends and coworkers? Do good and have fun by turning your next event into a fundraiser that benefits the Alzheimer's Association mission.
