History and Mission

Team End ALZ is the official athletics program of the Alzheimer’s Association Massachusetts/New Hampshire Chapter. The program was created for athletes of all abilities to help them successfully achieve their goal of completing an endurance event while raising funds for Alzheimer’s disease.

Our inaugural event was in April 2001 when 10 participants ran the Boston Marathon®. Collectively they raised $28,000. In 2006, the Alzheimer’s Association was selected as an official charity of the Boston Marathon and is now a proud partner of the John Hancock Non-Profit Program. Today, Team End ALZ is also an official charity partner for a variety of road races, including the Asics Falmouth Road Race, and the Mine Falls Trail Running Festival. Additionally, we offer support to individuals who wish to run any event of their choice and fundraise for the Alzheimer’s Association through out Run Your Own Race option.

Since the program began, millions of dollars have been raised by athletes towards the Alzheimer’s Association mission. We invite individuals of all ages and abilities to join Team End ALZ as a participant or volunteer at one of our races, or by making a donation to our program. Our athletes join together to meet the same goal: to #endALZ.
