The Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's® is our national signature event and brings together family, friends, caregivers and concerned community members — who want to make a difference. Since 1989, the Walk to End Alzheimer's has raised more than $300 million to help those battling Alzheimer's disease. In 2012 participants raised over $335,000 to fund Alzheimer's care, support and research programs. 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 15.2 million more serving as caregivers, the time to act is now.
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.

These companies recognize the impact Alzheimer's has on families, communities, and the healthcare system. Their support provides the Alzheimer's Association with an opportunity to increase awareness of Alzheimer's disease and to raise much needed funds to further our mission - to eliminate Alzheimer's disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health.
