Who We Are
Young ProfessionALZ of the Alzheimer’s Association MA/NH Chapter provides an opportunity for those between the ages of 21 and 40 to join together and raise awareness of Alzheimer’s disease and related dementia through volunteering, advocating, and having fun to further the mission of the Alzheimer’s Association.
Founded in March of 2010, Young ProfessionALZ, formerly AlzTogether, has hosted awareness events, participated in volunteer opportunities and supported public advocacy. Some of the events Young ProfessionALZ has organized or participated in include the Walk to End Alzheimer’s in which Young ProfessionALZ was among the top 25 fundraising teams, the Annual Cornhole Tournament, Ride to End Alzheimer’s, Happy Hour Fundraiser at Boston Beer Works, Advocacy Days at the Massachusetts State House and in Washington D.C., and the Purple Lighting of the Pru.
RivALZ features two teams of women, divided to reflect rivalries such as East vs. West or Blondes vs. Brunettes, competing in a flag football game to inspire fundraising, awareness and action in the fight against Alzheimer’s disease. Looking to get involved? We need dedicated players, but we also need coaches and volunteers. Want to cheer from the crowd? Donate to one of our players and you can receive admission to the game. It’s time to pick a side! Together, we can tackle Alzheimer’s. Learn more and sign up today at http://act.alz.org/rivalzboston
