Russell Browne
Managing Director, BMO Capital Markets

"This was the first fundraising I had ever done, the Donorlist team was awesome. Just educating myself more about the research has been extraordinary. My mother is 81 and was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s two summers ago. I want to engage [with the research] and stay engaged, for my mom, for my grandmother - I’ve become an advocate on so many levels."
