The Alzheimer’s Association MA/NH Chapter opened its doors in 1980 as one of the founding Chapters of our national association. We are the world leader in Alzheimer research and support, the first and largest voluntary health organization dedicated to finding prevention methods, treatments and an eventual cure for Alzheimer’s. We offer support and services in Massachusetts and New Hampshire. Our Run to End Alzheimer’s team consists of both qualified and charity runners with a commitment to raise funds for the Alzheimer’s Association. Our runners will have a coach, training runs and a fundraising mentor to help with their success.
