Get Informed. Get Inspired. Get Moving.

Maria Shriver and The Women’s Alzheimer’s Movement present Move for Minds - an annual initiative that aims to ignite men and women everywhere to make their cognitive health a priority!

Held each June in recognition of Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month, these groundbreaking events educate the public on the latest in Alzheimer’s research and on lifestyle changes they can make today to care for their brains and possibly prevent the disease. Funds raised through Move for Minds are used to accelerate women-based Alzheimer’s research, since women are at an increased risk for the disease.

Wherever you live, you can join The Women’s Alzheimer’s Movement and support the effort to find a cure for Alzheimer’s! Organize a walk, a hike, a run, a yoga or dance class, hold a concert, host a brain-healthy dinner or a game night — all to support women-based Alzheimer’s research. We’ll give you the tools to do so. All you need to do is click below!

Get Started

Every 65 seconds a new brain develops Alzheimer’s. Two out of three belong to women and no one knows why. We want to change that — and you can help.

“Alzheimer's is the biggest health crisis facing our country today, and it's going to take all of us working together to find the answers and wipe it out. As a daughter of Alzheimer's, I watched my father go from knowing every fact and figure to not even knowing my name. It was an extraordinarily painful experience. Imagine sparing one person that experience. Now imagine sparing a generation. Together we can make that happen.”
