Organization Description:

This year the Dallas County Medical Society Alliance is celebrating our 95th birthday! Organized in 1917, we are the oldest continuously operating Alliance in the country. We were instrumental in forming both the state and national Alliances. As an active group of physicians’ spouses and physicians, we remain true to our goals of supporting medicine, promoting health education, and providing enrichment and educational opportunities for our members while developing lasting friendships. Our home is the historic Aldredge House on Swiss Avenue in Old East Dallas. The Dallas County Medical Society Alliance has a rich heritage of nine decades of community service and support.

 

Over the years we have partnered with the Dallas County Medical Society. In 1984 we started annual Health Check. Through the years at NorthPark over 1,000,000 attendees came. We have done Community Health Fairs for the last two years in partnership with Church of the Incarnation and in the last two years have provided free immunizations, bicycle helmets, sports physicals and health screenings to over 500 people. In the last 18 years we have given over $780,000.00 to Edith Cavell Nursing Scholarships, Community Health fairs, VNA, The Science Place, Aldredge House, Stewpot, Wilkensen Center and many other non-profit beneficiaries.

 

Project Description:

On April 14, 2012, The Dallas County Medical Society Alliance will be hosting a Amazing Pace

Family Friendly Fitness Adventure Bike and Fun Run promoting healthy lifestyles through outdoor fitness and fun. The event will be a blend of cycling and running for all ages including entire families utilizing some of Dallas new biking trails and paths.

 

This event benefits the DCMSAF and The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF). DCMSAF hosts a Community Health Fair offering free immunizations, sports physicals, bicycles, bicycle helmets, health screenings and “Ask the Doctor” booths for low income families. We also grant Edith Cavell Nursing Scholarships which provide funds for tuition and books to worthy nursing students in Dallas. Our home is the historic Aldredge House on Swiss Avenue. DCMSA is the oldest Medical Alliance in the country. We were founded in 1917.

 

The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) is an organization founded on and driven by a single goal: to find a cure for diabetes and its complications through the support of research.

In 1970, a small group of parents made a promise to their children-to find a cure for diabetes and its complications. Today the passionate activism continues to drive the organization as it works diligently towards a cure. JDRF is structured on a business world model that efficiently and effectively directs resources to the research aimed at finding a cure as soon as possible. JDRF annually receives top ranking from independent sources that rate charitable giving.

 

JDRF is the worldwide leader in funding research to cure type 1, an autoimmune disease that strikes children and adults suddenly and lasts a lifetime. JDRF is the leading funder and advocate of type 1 diabetes science. The mission of JDRF is to find a cure for diabetes and its complications through the support of research.
