Year round, Ravenox twists vibrant colored ropes that benefit a variety of causes and organizations, but every September we're proud to support Alzheimer's Awareness month with our line of purple products we make right here in North Carolina. We donate 15% of all proceeds from the sale of purple rope and purple products to to the Veterans Against Alzheimer's Network.
Veteran's Against Alzheimer's
Veterans Against Alzheimer’s is a national network of veterans and their families, military leaders, veterans service organizations, researchers, and clinicians focused on raising awareness of Alzheimer’s disease as an urgent health issue for veterans.
Unique risk factors for Alzheimer’s as a direct result of their service challenge veterans of all ages. Factors range from service-related injuries such as traumatic brain injury to conditions such as post-traumatic stress and depression.
Our mission is to shine a light on this urgent issue and demand strengthened initiatives and investments to meet the needs of veterans with Alzheimer’s and other dementias, their caregivers, and their families.
"VeteransAgainstAlzheimer’s—a network of UsAgainstAlzheimer's—is serving those who have served our country by addressing the Alzheimer's crisis through resource mobilization, and targeted programming. Their work in increasing veterans’ participation in clinical trials is integral to finding a cure. It will help better understand the connection between Alzheimer's and PTSD, TBI and BIN—all war-related conditions. The community of caregivers, veterans, VSOs, families, researchers, lobbyists, and corporations that have come together to join forces with VeteransAgainstAlzheimer's speaks to the urgency of serving this population. VeteransAgainstAlzheimer's reminds us that we must do better for military families touched by Alzheimer's and other dementias."
