Welcome to the Alzheimer's Association - Greater Pennsylvania Chapter

With the passing of the summer solstice last week, summer has officially begun. Backyard barbeques, family gatherings, and enjoying the great outdoors will fill our schedules for the next few months, and all of us here at the Alzheimer’s Association Greater Pennsylvania Chapter are thrilled. While summer is incredible, we all know it goes by too quickly. Before you know it, we will be donning our sweaters and heading to football games in the crisp autumn air. As the fall approaches, so too do our Walk to End Alzheimer’s events. Held in 28 communities throughout September and October across the state, we join millions from around the nation in our largest fundraising and awareness initiative. Not just your average fundraiser, the Walk to End Alzheimer’s is crucial to our Association’s ability to fight this cruel disease.

The funds raised will go towards research, early and better detection, and ensuring affordable, high quality care and support for people suffering with the disease. The money we raise this season could help fund the very breakthroughs that will change the lives of millions.

And while we know what the fight against Alzheimer’s means to us, we recognize that each of you has a personal reason to join us this Walk season. Whether you are walking to raise awareness of early onset Alzheimer’s or honoring the courage with which your mother is fighting, we all walk towards a greater goal. We walk towards a world with active grandparents and great-grandparents, a world where cultural and family history is never lost and taken away from brilliant minds, a world with more cherished memories of your father’s cheerful quick wit. We all walk with decided purpose towards a world without Alzheimer’s.

For loved ones. For friends. For neighbors. For colleagues. For ourselves. We all have a reason. Walk to End Alzheimer’s this season. Register today.
