Stanford Jingle Bell Jog 5K run/walk for Alzheimer's was created with the mission of increasing awareness about Alzheimer's disease. As a secondary goal, we try to raise money to send to The Alzheimer's Association to provide additional funding for research.
Alzheimer's is the 6th leading cause of death in America. Alzheimer's is the only disease in the top 10 that cannot be prevented, cured or slowed. Over 6 million Americans have the disease. Almost two-thirds of Americans with Alzheimer's are women.
With the help of many generous sponsors, we are able to donate a minimum of $20 from the entry fee paid by our runners/walkers to the Alzheimer's Association. To date, Stanford Jingle Bell Jog has donated over $161K!!
