Walk to End Alzheimer's

The end of Alzheimer's disease starts here.

Join the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's™ and unite in a movement to reclaim the future for millions. With more than 5 million Americans living with Alzheimer's, and nearly 11 million more serving as caregivers, the time to act is now! Walk to End Alzheimer's is the nation's largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer care, support and research. Since 1989, this all age, all-ability walk has mobilized millions to join the fight against Alzheimer's disease, raising more than $347 million for the cause. Events are held annually in the fall in nearly 600 communities nationwide and in 8 locations throughout our chapter’s 17 county territory.

There is no registration fee to participate, however we simply ask you to raise funds for the cause. Walk to End Alzheimer’s is a wonderful opportunity for family and friends to take a stand against this disease and show their support for those whose lives have been affected by Alzheimer’s disease.

When you register for Walk to End Alzheimer's, you're joining an unstoppable force of thousands of people who are standing up to this devastating disease.
