Participating in Walk to End Alzheimer's is a meaningful way to make a difference in your community. While there is no fee to register and no fundraising minimum to participate, we encourage every walker to raise funds to advance the efforts of the Alzheimer's Association. With your help, we are able to deliver information and education to millions of individuals, caregivers and medical professionals who face dementia every day, provide care and support across the country, advocate for the needs and rights of people facing Alzheimer's, and advance research seeking methods of prevention, treatment and ultimately, a cure.
Fundraising is easy! Check out the Fundraising section for ideas on how to get started. And continue reading for even more incentive to fundraise. We want to reward you with some fantastic prizes as together we Walk to End Alzheimer’s.
