Baycrest Alzheimer’s Research Initiative

For the month of April, the Thumper team has been donating a portion of every sale to the Baycrest Alzheimer’s Research initiative. Our goal is to continually support the fight to find a cure for Alzheimer’s disease and to improve the care of those who currently have this horrible stream of dementia. We can all do our part to help the millions of people who suffer from Alzheimer’s in North America. So whether its increasing awareness, spending time with a grandparent or parent who has the disease, or even donating directly to a fund, we hope you will join us in supporting this universal cause. Thank you.
