Start a Team

Forming a team for the Walk to End Alzheimer's can multiply your impact on the fight against Alzheimer's. Together, as a team, you are a force much greater than what you can accomplish alone.

What makes up a team? - family members, co-workers, neighbors, or friends - who together raise funds and bring their collective enthusiasm to the Walk. Walkers that raise $100 in pledges are entitled to a "Walk to End Alzheimer's" t-shirt. 

Team leaders should register online (by clicking on the desired Walk location above) or by calling Alzheimer's Assocation office at 414.479.8800.

Don't have a team? That's ok, you can register as an individual too!

Volunteer for a Walk to End Alzheimer's

Each of the six Walks depends on the volunteer efforts of a local steering committee to plan and cordinate numerous details, such as team and walker recruitment; entertainment; food and beverages, prizes, registration, logistics, and publicity. There is a place and a role for everyone who would like to get involved. If you can't commit to a long-term assignment, there are many one-time tasks, such as distributing Walk brochures or working at a water stop on the day of the Walk. Let us know how you'd like to help by calling Amanda Armstrong at the chapter office: 414.479.8800 or
