The teens division of the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America (AFA) is currently competing for a $25,000 award from the Pepsi Refresh Contest that will help teens impacted by Alzheimer’s disease get connected, educated and involved.
AFA Teens would use the award to add interactive, educational tools to its Web site (www.afateens.org)
and help teens build support systems in their communities by distributing funds to AFA Teens chapters nationwide. The online tools will explain disease progression, offer coping strategies, and encourage teens to adopt healthy lifestyles that may lower risk factors for chronic diseases as they age.
Award winners are determined by the number of votes received from the public during a specific month that the proposal is posted. AFA Teens is competing through May 31.
“We encourage you to vote each day throughout May and spread the word so we can assist teens across America.
Together, we can change the face of care,” said Eric J. Hall, AFA’s president and CEO.
