Founded in 2011, Memory Ball is a Toronto-based, not-for-profit organization whose mandate is to educate young Canadians about Alzheimer’s disease and empower them through integrated events to raise funds for caregiver support and medical research, so that those touched by this disease can lead happier and healthier lives.
Through a flagship gala and quarterly curated events in partnership with the Alzheimer’s Society of Toronto, Memory Ball strives to alleviate the suffering caused by Alzheimer’s disease through awareness, caregiver support, medical research funding, and education.
The following Memory Ball values are at the heart of everything we do:
- Dispel the myth that Alzheimer’s disease only affects the elderly, and overcome the taboo surrounding early onset of the disease through efforts to increase awareness among young people.
- Support caregivers through their journey alongside loved ones suffering from Alzheimer’s disease by providing emotional and financial resources.
- Conquer the disease within our lifetime by funding medical research for a cure, so future generations can live happier, healthier lives free of Alzheimer’s.
- Educate young Canadians on the proactive steps they can take to improve and maintain brain health, encouraging safe futures for those at risk.
We share a vision with the Alzheimer Society of Toronto of a world without Alzheimer’s disease. We are thankful for their continued support and resources in pursuit of our mission. For more information on their organization, services, and yearly events, visit https://alz.to/
