Current Volunteer Opportunities
- Become a Support Group Leader - Facilitate a support group for Alzheimer's family members or friends as well as specialized groups for the early-diagnosed individual.

Walk to End Alzheimer's would not be possible without the support of our fantastic volunteers! As a volunteer, your contribution of time and energy to make the event a success is invaluable. In 2014, we will host 11 Walks throughout our Western and Central Washington service area and will need your help!
