COINS FOR ALZHEIMER'S RESEARCH TRUST
2019-2020 PROJECT: THE VERA JEAN CHALLENGE
This year, the Rotaract Club of Tampa is fundraising for CART: Coins for Alzheimer's Trust. 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.CART Fund by-laws require that 100% of all donated funds must go to A.D. research.All contributions are tax deductible.
With the help of Rotary Clubs across our city, district, zone, and nation, we hope to raise $40,000 by June 2020.
The purpose of Rotaract is to provide an opportunity for young men and women to enhance the knowledge and skills that will assist them in personal development, to address the physical and social needs of their communities, and to promote better relations between all people worldwide through a framework of friendship and service.
