Van Andel Institute located in downtown Grand Rapids, MI is committed to improving the health and enhancing the lives of current and future generations through disease research and science education. The Institute has led the expansion of the life science industry in this region. Collaborative partnerships among world-class health care, research, and educational organizations have led to dramatic growth in the life sciences sector in the region, making Grand Rapids a career destination choice in this area.
Purple CommunityⓇ is a grassroots fundraising program at Van Andel Institute. Through peer-to-peer fundraising and cause marketing programs, people just like you turn their passions into support for the work to fight cancer, Parkinson’s and other neurodegenerative diseases.
Purple Community is uniquely you. Whatever your passion is – mountain biking, quilting, food, or fitness – you can use it to help them accelerate research that will impact the lives of family and friends fighting disease. Every dollar we raise goes directly to the laboratories where scientists are searching for answers. They don’t keep a single penny to pay the bills or keep the lights on. Whether we raise $50 or $5,000, our efforts will have a direct impact on research and discovery at Van Andel Institute. #WhatsYourPurple
