100% of donations raised at the event will go to the Cure Alzheimer’s Fund who provides research grants in the search for a cure for Alzheimer’s Disease.

The Morels & Memories Mushroom Hunt & Alzheimer’s Fundraiser was started in honor of our mother Heidi Vanderlinde who was diagnosed with Younger Onset Alzheimer’s Disease in 2011 at the age of 49. She sadly lost her battle to the disease August 2019. As a lover of the outdoors, plants, and sunshine, we remember her with this event.

Today, there is no cure for Alzheimer’s disease. Until there is, we will hunt morel mushrooms to fund research for a cure!
