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 year 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 or 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.

Get Started

“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.”
