Coins for Alzheimer’s Research Trust (CART)

The purpose of the CART Fund (Coins for Alzheimer’s Research Trust) is to collect and provide dollars for leading edge research for the cure/prevention of Alzheimer’s disease (AD). It started in 1996 with Rotarians voluntarily empting their pockets and purses of change at weekly meetings. One of our Past Presidents, Karen Shore, has been a passionate supporter of this program since its inception.

“The CART Fund provides dollars for innovated research to fight Alzheimer’s disease.”
