The Next Generation's Fight to End Alzheimer's
Our Mission: The Alzheimer’s Association Young Champions is a diverse group of emerging leaders dedicated to changing the face of Alzheimer's disease and other dementias by engaging their peers and raising awareness across generations.
Our Vision: A world without Alzheimer's.
Who Are We
Young Champions are dedicated to increasing awareness of Alzheimer's and related dementias, raising funds to provide help and hope to those affected, and advocating for change at the state and federal levels. Many members have been touched by Alzheimer's or another dementia personally and see the epidemic's potential to affect everyone in our society. There are Young Champions groups in the Twin Cities, Duluth, Fargo and St. Cloud.

Attend a Young Champions Event
We host regular events to socialize and promote awareness of Alzheimer's. Check out our Facebook pages to find an upcoming event.
RivALZ is a volunteer-driven event that brings young professionals together to support the Alzheimer's Association. The event is organized around a flag football game in which the two participating teams are divided based on the age-old rivalry. Anyone can get involved, no matter your level of ability, hair color or gender. Since RivALZ began in 2013, it has raised more than $700,000 for the Alzheimer's Association!
