Part of Memory Ball's mission goes beyond throwing a great party, but to increase awareness of Alzheimer's in our community. Whenever we hear of any media events surrounding Alzheimer's, we jump on the opportunity to share and promote the content being presented.  'Untangling Alzheimer's' of CBC's The Nature of Things with David Suzuki, is a fascinating episode that covered what it may be like to have Alzheimer's, ways to test for the disease, the link between nutrition and cognitive function, scientific advances and much more. For Suzuki, the disease hits close to home as his mother suffered from Alzheimer's. As a geneticist with a family history of AD, he has a particular interest in discovering more about the non-genetic components of the disease. Here are some points in the show that we took away and wanted to share with the Memory Ball community. Watch the full episode here.

Over the past three years, the Memory Ball committee has been moved by the number of people who would like to get involved with Memory Ball and the Alzheimer's activist community. Behold, the answer to the burning question "How can I get more involved with the most [Memory]ballin' charity gala event of the year?". We are looking for committed, hardworking and skilled volunteers who will join our team to help make Memory Ball 2014 the most unforgettable night of the year. The following positions require a varying degree of commitment so please have a look and apply to the one that you think you'd excel at.
