About Reason to Hope

Reason to Hope is a powerful one-hour luncheon designed to educate the community about the Alzheimer's Association while raising funds to support Alzheimer's research, programs and services.

Over the past nine years, Reason to Hope has raised over $1.7 million to help provide care and support for Illinois residents, as well as advance the field of Alzheimer's research. By participating in a Reason to Hope event, you can help make a difference in the lives of the 220,000 people living with Alzheimer's in Illinois and the estimated 590,000 caregivers.
