The Alzheimer's Association works on global, national and local levels to enhance care and support for Alzheimer's sufferers, caregivers and everyone affected by the disease and related dementia disorders.

Hollywood celebrities, including actors Paul Rudd, Sophia Bush, Aziz Ansari, Ty Burrell and many others also participated in the fundraiser. The event raised more than $300,000 dollars for Alzheimer’s research and awareness, but some of the celebs had a few medical questions of their own for The Doctors!
