Let me start by saying "Thank you!"
Thank you for clicking my link. Thank you for even considering to donate to BvB Dallas. Thank you for caring. It truly means everything to me that you are taking the time to read this.
BvB Dallas is one of the leading voluntary organizations in Alzheimer's research, care and support in DFW. Both Team Blonde & Team Brunette are dedicated to finding preventative methods, treatments for brain disorders and an eventual cure of Alzheimer's Disease. Both teams drive and committment over the past 12 seasons has spurred a staggering $4 million in funds raised. We achieve goal by playing a flag football game annually in Dallas' most historic stadium, the Cotton Bowl!
The donation you make today can help us understand more about the brain, raise awareness for Alzheimer's Disease and provide needed care and support for families affected. TACKLE ALZHEIMER'S FOREVER.
GAME DAY: The 12th Annual BvB Dallas Powder-Puff Football Game will be held at the Cotton Bowl at Fair Park on Saturday, August 10th. Kick-Off will be held at 7:30pm and the after-party will be held on the front steps of the stadium immediately following the game. We hope to see you there!
Your $25 donation or more to BvB Dallas gains your entrance to the game and after-party. There are no physical tickets. All donors' names will be held at will-call on Game Day at the stadium.
Even if you can't make it to the game, every single dollar helps. Please donate and specify a person you want to honor. I will write that person's name on my arm and play for them during the game. This game is for them.
Your donation helps the following beneficiaries:
1) Center for Brain Health: The Discovery Group program, a strength-based program aiming to optimize the abilities of individuals with early stage Alzheimer's disease. BvB's funding will help expand the program to create and pilot targeted education for caregivers, community workshops, and professional seminars that can be replicated throughout the community for a broader impact.
2) The Senior Source: This funding will support programs within the agency that directly serve older adults with dementia. This includes the Senior Companion Program, which places specially trained volunteers in the homes of older adults to provide personal assistance as well as respite care for the family caregiver. We will also provide funding for the Caregiver Support Program, which provides expertise, counseling, and resources for family caregivers.
3) UNT Health Science Center: Funding a study investigating hyperbaric oxygen therapy as a potential treatment for Alzheimer's disease.
4) UT Southwestern Medical Center: In addition to the Clinical Neuropsychology Alzheimer's Fellowship at UT Southwestern, BvB will also be funding a groundbreaking research study to determine if focused ultrasound can be used to deliver therapeutic agents into the brain to treat Alzheimer's disease.
