It’s 1 September, and today is the start of something exciting.
At Neuro Central, we’re celebrating World Alzheimer’s Month all this month, culminating in World Alzheimer’s Day on 21 September. Join us as we honor those living with dementia, as well as celebrate the scientists, clinicians, charities and fundraisers working to beat this disease. Throughout September, not only will we sharing the latest advances in dementia research on Neuro Central and talking to a whole host of experts in the field, but we’ll also be raising money for two charities that support Alzheimer’s patients, carers and the latest research: Alzheimer’s Research UK and Alzheimer’s Society.
How can you get involved?
That’s easy! During September, for every new member who joins Neuro Central, we’ll donate £3* to be shared between these two charities – all you need to do is sign up and tell your friends to do the same.
We’ll also be sharing stories throughout the month from a diverse mix of World Alzheimer’s Day supporters – our #VoicesForAlzheimers – across our social media channels, and, for every unique retweet or share of our tweets featuring the #VoicesForAlzheimers hashtag, we’ll donate another £1** to the charities.
That’s two easy ways to help support cutting-edge dementia research. But why stop there? You can also submit a personal donation to Alzheimer’s Research UK or Alzheimer’s Society, or start your own fundraising events.
I look forward to sharing our #VoicesForAlzheimers with you throughout September, and please do share our posts, sign up, tell your friends, and help us beat dementia!
My very best wishes,
Editor, Neuro Central
