What we do
AlzExpeditions.org is driven by the power of stories, gathered from our global journeys to meet pioneering Alzheimer’s and brain disease researchers.
We’re on a dedicated mission to raise $25 million for Alzheimer’s research. While our stories spotlight top scientists, we also highlight everyday heroes who have done extraordinary things to support their loved ones battling these diseases.
Will this journey take you through every national park in Canada, Mexico, the United States, and New Zealand? Absolutely. It’s already an awe-inspiring adventure. But our vision extends beyond captivating landscapes — we aim for a world without Alzheimer’s.
Join us on this incredible journey at AlzExpeditions.org. It’s truly an adventure, with purpose.

The Reason Behind ALZ Expeditions Karen Elz
To know Karen Elz was to know an extraordinary soul. For 37 remarkable years, she was not only my wife but my best friend, sharing an adventure that time cannot dim. Although she may have left this world, her spirit thrives through her indomitable passion for life, leaving an indelible mark on our children – Bo, Zac, and Emily – as well as in my heart.
Just an ordinary guy who was thrust into an extraordinary role by circumstances. Prior to 2017, Alzheimer’s wasn’t a part of Bob’s world until his wife, Karen, received her diagnosis. What followed was a journey of caregiving marked by challenges, resilience, and a profound love.
