Walk to End Alzheimer's

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 all want to make a difference. Since 1989,  Walk to End Alzheimer's has raised more than $225 million to help those battling Alzheimer's disease.

Walk to End Alzheimer's is a great opportunity to participate in the movement to end Alzheimer's disease. Thousands of walkers come out to support the cause at walks throughout Northern California and Northern Nevada, raising over $3.5 million at our 17 local walks. Register for Walk to End Alzheimer's today and help us raise even more.

AlzStars Active Events

Are you a runner or a cyclist looking for a way to support the cause? Sign up as an AlzStar and compete in your local marathon, triathlon, bike race, or other event to raise money for the Alzheimer’s Association. To participate, simply register for whatever race you’d like to participate in and pay any applicable registration fees. Then visit our AlzStar website to create your own fundraising webpage. You can tell your story – why you’re racing, why you’re fundraising for Alzheimer’s disease – and use our email tools to ask for donations.

Blondes vs. Brunettes

Alzheimer's Association Blondes vs. Brunettes is a volunteer event driven by young women that brings the passion and spirit of young community leaders together to support the Alzheimer’s Association.  The event is an organized flag football game in which the two participating teams are divided based on the age-old rivalry between blondes and brunettes (Note: Redheads are “free agents,” permitted to play for the team of their choice).  Coaches, announcers, cheerleaders, and other volunteers are also key roles of the BvB game. Funds raised at Blondes vs. Brunettes events benefit the care, support, advocacy and research efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association. Practices are held from April 21st – August 18th at the Little Marina Green (Yacht Road and Marina Blvd.) Game Day is Saturday, August 23rd at 12:00pm in San Francisco.
