Los Angeles CA, November 2: “Move for Minds 2019:” WAM promised its annual fundraiser would be bigger, better and bolder than ever, and with the help of our founding partner, Equinox Fitness, we delivered! Over 600 participants, supported by over 1500 fundraisers, joined speakers, sponsors, and vendors, for an incredible experience that included the best in Alzheimer’s and brain health, food, exercise, technology, and clean wellness and beauty products.
Held at Equinox Sports Club Los Angeles on November 2nd, Move for Minds 2019 was an amazing experience designed to transform the mind, body, and spirit. Our founder Maria Shriver was joined onstage by an illustrious panel of experts: Roberta Brinton PhD, Jessica Caldwell PhD, Josh Grill PhD, Richard Isaacson MD, Lisa Mosconi PhD, Drew Ramsey MD, and Wendy Suzuki PhD, as well as a prestigious lineup that included meditation practitioners, fitness instructors, celebrity advocates and chefs who, along with top health and wellness brands, brought us the latest cutting edge information and practices designed to protect our brains throughout life.
Now in its fifth year, Move for Minds remains a groundbreaking, annual fundraising initiative that educates the public about the latest in Alzheimer’s research and advocates lifestyle changes people can make today to support better brain health long-term. Funds raised through Move for Minds are used to accelerate women-based Alzheimer’s research since women account for two out of three cases of the disease and comprise two-thirds of all caregivers. Move for Minds recognizes Alzheimer’s as a family disease and therefore as an opportunity to bring together generations of women — and the men who love them — to get the information and tools they need to take charge of their cognitive health. Thanks to all of you, WAM will be adding to the 18 research grants we have already funded at leading institutions around the country.
