About Dyeing to End Alzheimer's

The Alzheimer's Association NYC Chapter’s Dyeing to End Alzheimer’s is a fundraiser to raise money and awareness for the Alzheimer’s Association NYC Chapter’s free care, support, advocacy as well as to research to find a cure.

In its first year, Dyeing to End Alzheimer’s hopes that thousands of New Yorkers will dye and color all or part of their hair purple to show their support for Alzheimer’s, the Nation’s sixth leading cause of death, and add visibility to a disease largely invisible, ignored, or not talked about in public as well as to decrease the stigma associated with memory loss. 

This inspiring call to action asks participants of all ages and abilities to reclaim the future for millions.  Together, we can fight and END Alzheimer’s disease, while looking trendy and chic while doing it!
