AliveInside.Org grew out of the Sundance-winning film,Alive Inside" by Michael Rossato-Bennett.
This award-winning documentary shows the remarkable ability music has to reach into the minds of those living with Alzheimer's.


Enough money was raised at the 'RAD- A Concert for Alzheimer’s' to help give 100 additional Memory Players through the Alive Inside Challenge.

AliveInside.Org thanks all the artists and volunteers who made this event possible!



A big thank you to our sponsors- without them, the 'RAD concert for Alzheimer's' would not have been possible.
