Our student organization is inspired by the story of founder, Emeri Bradford, and her late grandmother, Rita Morales. Texas Aggies Fighting Alzheimer's (TAFA) is excited to launch as a Texas A&M university recognized student organization that works to give a voice to Alzheimer’s disease by raising Alzheimer’s awareness and educating students on the prevalence and effects Alzheimer's disease and other dementias. We educate, raise awareness about ongoing research efforts, fundraise through various events for the Alzheimer’s Association -- the world's leading private funder of Alzheimer's disease research, and foster a community that supports and upholds the stories and memories of those who can no longer remember.
In our first semester as a TAMU organization, we had several speakers come an educate us about Alzheimer's, we volunteered at several local Alzheimer's-related events, and we raised over $3,000 for the local Walk to End Alzheimer's!
