The Darrell K Royal Research Fund for Alzheimer's Disease is a privately funded charitable organization that represents the pinnacle of commitment to excellence in Research and Care for Texans.  The game plan is to participate aggressively in an attempt to cure Alzheimer's disease (AD) in our lifetimes, to expand research into Mild Cognitive Impairment, and to expand the paradigms of care and access for Texans which enable exposure to preventative care and treatment strategies aimed at combating the epidemic of AD.

The Legacy

"The sad fact is that most everyone in our state is touched by this disease and the Darrell Royal family is no exception," says Edith Royal. "The DKR Research Fund represents a commitment to excellence in Alzheimer's research and care for Texans, the nation and the world. I am grateful for the opportunity to create this legacy for my husband, and for the incredible group of prominent Texans who want to join us in this endeavor."

By establishing the Darrell K Royal Research Fund for Alzheimer's Disease to fund critical and collaborative research that will bring about medical breakthroughs in the treatment and cure of AD, Darrell K Royal hoped that his notoriety would be a game-changer in the lives of all Texans.

The DKR Research Fund honors Texas' football legend and iconic college coach, but also the man who wanted to do all he could to eradicate this terrible disease once and for all.
