Reason to Hope 2019

Reason to hope is a community breakfast in Portland designed for working professionals who are looking to join the fight against Alzheimer's, yet may lack the time for a volunteer commitment. Join us as a table host and bring 9 other people (friends, family, coworkers, etc.) to learn more about the impact of Alzheimer's and about the work being done by the Alzheimer's Association.
