Athletes to End Alzheimer's
Text Size controlsNormal font sizeMedium font sizeLarge font size

Athletes to End Alzheimer’s is an initiative started by the Alzheimer's Association NYC Chapter to give endurance athletes the opportunity to participate in the events that they love while working to end Alzheimer’s disease, the nation’s sixth-leading cause of death. Via triathlons, bikeathons or marathons athletes across the greater NYC area will come together to support the millions affected by the disease and those who care for them. Join us as we swim, bike and run to reclaim the future of millions and end Alzheimer’s.
