Many Third Party Events are held throughout our Greater Kentucky and Southern Indiana chapter to help us raise awareness and funds. These events are conceived, hosted and run by very dedicated volunteers who want to go the extra mile for the Alzheimer’s Association. Their support is invaluable to us and to the 5.4 million Americans fighting this disease.
If you are interested in holding a special event for the Alzheimer's Association, there is a link at the bottom of the page to get you started!

Save the date, Kentucky!
The Alzheimer’s Association would like to invite you to help bring awareness to our cause. Please join us on February 24, 2016 for Kentucky Alzheimer’s Advocacy Day. The event will take place at the State Capitol in Frankfort beginning at 10:00 a.m. and will be an exciting opportunity to meet and share with our elected officials how many Kentuckians are impacted by Alzheimer’s disease. We will also rally in the Rotunda to request more support and services for ALL seniors. If there is one event you choose to attend next year, make it count - Show your support and let your legislators know that your voice matters!

The two teams, divided based on the age-old rivalry between blondes and brunettes, aim to increase awareness of Alzheimer’s disease among a new generation.
