7 Continents and Beyond! Run4Papa’s Pursuit for PPA Treatment

In partnership with Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine, Run4Papa has launched a game-changing initiative to raise funds towards developing and implementing integrated care programs for individuals with Primary Progressive Aphasia (PPA). The path forward will require that we collaborate with speech therapy specialists who can provide crucial services for individuals with a diagnosis and their family members. We are excited to go down this path, but need your help!

OUR GOAL: To raise $7,500 to match the 7,500 miles run (to date) by Run4Papa. Your essential pilot funding donation will support a groundbreaking PPA study that will guarantee our patients are the beneficiaries of the latest medical research. 

Please know that 100% of your donation goes to fund The Mesulam Center for Cognitive Neurology and Alzheimer's Disease at Northwestern University's Feinberg School of Medicine.
