Fundació Castell de Peralada has obtained a total of € 25,000 that will be used to contribute to Alzheimer's research that is carried out at Fundació ACE.
The collection, obtained through the donations of the guests to the opening night of the International Music Festival of Peralada, will be used to finance the NORFACE project that Fundació ACE Research Unit has been carrying out for five years. The study analyzes the relationship between the thickness of the retina and the deterioration in order to determine if it is possible to diagnose Alzheimer's disease early through the study of the retina.
Dr. Mercè Boada, co-founder and medical director of Fundació ACE, has thanked "the commitment and fidelity of Fundació Castell de Peralada and its president, Isabel Suqué, in the fight against Alzheimer". Likewise, she has stressed the importance of “recognized entities such as Fundació Castell de Peralada collaborate with this cause and help us to make it visible”.
Meanwhile, Isabel Suqué, Fundació Castell de Peralada's president, has reiterated “our commitment to Alzheimer's research is capital and our will is firm and determined to continue supporting the fight of this disease that increasingly affects more people".
Both entities collaborate since 2014 in awareness raising and fundraising projects and, this year, they presented at the Alzheimer Europe Conference the project "Music for memory" of Festival of Peralada.
