To Fight Alzheimer's & ALS
Run2Revive was founded with an ultimate goal of ending both Alzheimer’s and ALS disease - two devastating neurodegenerative disorders that threaten to take our mind and body from us. Researchers increasingly believe that neurodegenerative diseases such as ALS and Alzheimer's share important features. Furthering our understanding of one disease may help us to prevent, treat, and cure the other. We run for those that have had their mind or body taken from them. We believe in the cure. Donate now if you share our belief.
To Inspire You to Reach New Limits
At Run2Revive, we believe in pushing the limits of what is possible. We CHALLENGE those not affected by Alzheimer's or ALS to move beyond perceived limits in acknowledgment of the strength and courage shown by those that face these diseases. Our challenge is for you to go further, dig deeper, and do something more physically and mentally demanding than you have ever done before. We believe in constantly stepping out of our comfort zone, striving to achieve more, and having the discipline to keep moving forward. If, like us, you believe in moving beyond the status quo, commit to running with us. Some of us aren't runners but all of us believe in raising our standards. If climbing a mountain or riding a century appeals to you more than running a marathon, we are ready to get behind you. Do something you've never done before by signing up for your own challenge.
To Promote the Importance of Mind & Body Wellness
We vow to never take our mind or our body for granted. We want to encourage others to live a healthy, more fulfilled lifestyle. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, a 2012 study showed that more than 1/3 of children and adolescents were overweight or obese. Obese youth are more likely to have risk factors for cardiovascular disease and growing evidence suggests that the health of the brain is closely linked to the overall health of the heart and blood vessels. Commit with us to regular exercise and a healthy diet. Become a Run2Revive advocate by making your miles count.
Our Unique Approach
Run2Revive concentrates it’s resources towards prevention and curing Alzheimer's and ALS. There are an abundance of promising research experiments that lack the funding to proceed. Research is expensive. The more experiments we fund, the closer we will get to preventing and curing neurodegenerative diseases. 100% of your donation will be put towards funding research that aims to prevent and cure ALZ and ALS.
As a by-product of our ultimate goal, we become a healthier, more fulfilled, and ambitious community.
