On December 2nd, in celebration of Women’s Brain Health Day, join thousands of others and take part in the Stand Ahead® Memory Challenge to stand up against research bias and stand ahead for women’s brain health.
THE STAND AHEAD® MEMORY CHALLENGE
HOW MANY CARDS CAN YOU REMEMBER?
STEP 1 Shuffle a deck of cards.
STEP 2 Select 7 cards at random face down.
STEP 3 Turn the 7 cards face up and examine them for 10 seconds.
STEP 4 Turn the 7 cards face down.
STEP 5 Recall out load as many as you can. (You do not need to recall the suit of each card).
HOW IT WORKS…

2: On December 2, 2020, post the video and use the hashtag #StandAhead.
3: Follow & tag @StandAhead on Instagram or Facebook
4: Donate to the cause at: standahead.org.
5: Challenge two others to participate (they will have 48 hours to take the challenge).
6: Direct viewers to standahead.org to donate and learn more.
POST DATE FOR THE STAND AHEAD® MEMORY CHALLENGE IS DEC 2, 2020.
