Alzheimer’s disease is the nation’s sixth-leading cause of death. Over 6 million Americans are living with the disease and nearly 11 million individuals are acting as caregivers. It’s time to take action and change the course of this epidemic! Our mission is to eliminate Alzheimer's disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health.
In support of leading our Mission, for 11 years, Dancing Stars of Columbus has been one of the communities most exciting events. Thus far, the event has raised over 1.3 million and with these critical dollars, funds our care and support programs as well as Alzheimer’s research. We thank you for showing your continued support for our 2020 - 2021 event!
Since the beginning of the pandemic, we all have seen many difficult challenges including the opportunity to gather together like we have in the past for the Dancing Stars of Columbus. As a voluntary health organization, we must continue to follow public health safety guidelines which includes not gathering in large groups. Given our parameters, the only course to be able to continue to raise critical funds through Dancing Stars is to do something a little different, but very exciting!
This year, we are thrilled to announce we are taking the 2021 event to the Virtual World! There we will present our incredible 2021 Cast who will vie for two coveted Mirror Ball trophies: The People’s Choice Award for the highest fundraising total and The Judge’s Choice Award for the highest scored dance couple of the evening.
Please consider supporting this amazing cause while voting for your favorite cast member through sponsorship dollars, virtual ticket sales, or donating in honor of a family member or friend.
