Alzheimer’s Night 2017: its second edition

La Noche del Alzheimer 2017: segunda edición

 

The Castell de Peralada will host the 2nd Alzheimer’s Night organized by Fundació ACE. This year the meeting will take place on Friday, July 28th in the White Hall of the Castell de Peralada. The event seeks to combine solidarity with culinary and cultural experience, within the framework of the summer festival that this year marks its 31st edition. Given the success of The Alzheimer’s Night 2016, ACE Foundation intends to continue this initiative designed to raise awareness of the importance of investing in research projects against this disease.

In August of last year, in its first edition, Alzheimer’s Night collected 28,000 for the NORFACE project, which is a study of the correlation between retinal thickness and cognitive impairment. This year, thanks to the success achieved in the previous one, ACE Foundation launches a more ambitious project including: the creation of the first Unit for Prevention and Early Diagnosis of the disease.

Given the success of the previous edition, Fundación ACE retakes the initiative with the same premise as last year. It is a night of music and dance to be part of the fight against Alzheimer’s. Tickets for Alzheimer’s Night are now available until full capacity: more information here.
