Welcome to TackleALZ NYC, the premiere women's flag football fundraiser to benefit Alzheimer's care and support! TackleALZ NYC is a volunteer-driven active event for women (as players) and men (as coaches) that brings the passion and spirit of young community leaders together to support CaringKind, New York City’s leading expert on Alzheimer’s and dementia caregiving. The event is organized around a flag football game in which the two participating teams are divided based upon the age-old rivalry between blondes and brunettes.
This year marks our eighth annual game in New York City, and we invite all interested participants to become part of the largest and most fun "family" in the city! Whether you identify as a member of the Blondetourage or the BruCrew, you'll make an impact on New Yorkers affected by Alzheimer's while creating new lasting friendships and memories.
CaringKind is New York City’s leading expert on Alzheimer’s and dementia caregiving. With over 30 years of experience, we work directly with our community partners to develop the information, tools and training to support individuals and families affected by dementia.
We offer a 24-hour Helpline (646) 744-2900 run by professional staff; individual and family counseling sessions with licensed social workers; a vast network of support groups; education seminars and training programs; early stage services and a wanderer’s safety program. We believe in the power of caregiving and seek a world where everyone dealing with dementia has the support they need, when they need it.
