One more year, The Alzheimer's Night took place yesterday at the Castell de Peralada Festival to celebrate its third edition. During the evening, more than 100 people gathered, including personalities such as Cristina Brondo, Josep Puigbó, Carla Hinojosa, Jordi Tello y Piluka de Echegaray.
This initiative, organized by Fundació ACE and Fundació Castell de Peralada, will use the funds to the expansion of the FACEHBI project, a leading study in Spain which regularly follows up 200 healthy volunteers. The first results of the study which have been reported recently show that the risk of developing vascular, neurodegenerative and age-related diseases susceptible to dementia in healthy people can be anticipated.
In addition, in the course of the Alzheimer's Night, Fundació ACE presented the new video of the campaign Give Memory 2018 which will be officially released on World Alzheimer's Day. In addition to the support of the Fundació Castell de Peralada, the event was sponsored by private companies such as TRAM, Abertis, Frimercat, the Girona Medical Association, ARA or Diari de Girona.
