The Megathon is a “mega catching marathon” in Stall Catchers – a citizen science game that anyone can play to help speed up Alzheimer's research. Learn more about the game here. "Catchathons" gather communities worldwide for intense "catching marathons", breaking records while analyzing new data from Cornell University. With everyone pitching in, we can accelerate the research by orders of magnitude.

Our Catchathon is going MEGA for Citizen Science Day 2019. Public libraries, schools, senior living centers, and people everywhere will work together for one hour to answer a key research question about Alzheimer's disease that would normally take scientists an entire year!

The Megathon will take place on April 13, 2019, 1.30-3.30pm ET.
