On June 4, Equinox Sports Clubs in eight different cities across the United States will become ground zero for a one of a kind experience to support women’s brain research into Alzheimer’s and raise awareness of the fact that Alzheimer’s disproportionately impacts women. For the second year, this unique event brings together two powerhouse brands in Equinox and Maria Shriver.
Participants in Equinox Sports Clubs in New York, Los Angeles, Orange County, San Francisco, Boston, Dallas, Miami and Washington, D.C. will fundraise to participate in a one-hour work out specifically designed by Equinox’s top fitness experts to optimize both body and brain health. This workout marries the benefits of yoga and mindful meditation with the adrenaline rush of cross training.
Following the innovative brain/body workout, attendees will engage with one another socially in a groundbreaking marketplace where they will get to meet and hear from leading superstars of brain research, fitness, food, nutrition, stress, sleep and caregiving.
Move for Minds is an unprecedented gathering of empowered women, men and leading experts who believe funding women’s brain research will help us solve the Alzheimer’s epidemic and answer the question: Why are so many people getting Alzheimer’s and why are the majority of them women?

The annual gala, A December to Remember, raises funds to support Alzheimer’s disease research at UCI MIND, Orange County’s only state and federally funded Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center. Widely respected among the scientific community, UCI MIND is one of only 30 such centers in the nation and has been awarded highly competitive grant funding each year. However, additional funding is necessary to move researchers closer to prevention, treatment, and a cure. The annual gala aims to generate the additional, vital philanthropic support required to take Alzheimer’s disease research to the next level.
The 2016 A December to Remember gala, held at the luxurious Balboa Bay Resort in Newport Beach, attracted over 300 philanthropists and raised $375,000 for Alzheimer’s disease research at UCI MIND. Save the date for our 2017 event to be held on December 2, 2017! For more information, please contact Linda Scheck, Director of Development at 949.824.3251 or email@example.com.
