PROJECT OVERVIEW

C.A.R.T. [Coins for Alzheimer's Research Trust]  The CART Fund provides funds for cutting edge research to cure Alzheimer's disease.  Our Rotarians voluntarily empty their pockets and purses of change at weekly meetings.

The CART Fund is dedicated to raising funds to provide “seed” money for cutting edge, high impact research in hopes of finding a cure/prevention for Alzheimer’s disease.  The goal of the Fund is to encourage exploratory and developmental AD research projects within the United States. This is accomplished by providing financial support for the early and conceptual plans of those projects that may not yet be supported by extensive preliminary data but have the potential to substantially advance biomedical research.

 

 

IMPACT STATEMENT

Alzheimer's disease is a progressive disorder that causes brain cells to waste away (degenerate) and die.  Most of us know someone - a loved one, or a friend - that is facing this disease.  Together with our District and the many districts in the south east, millions have been raised for this important research.
