ALZ Stars Program

Founded in 2010, the Alzheimer’s Association ALZ Stars® program created an opportunity for runners, cyclists, swimmers and triathletes to test their limits while pursuing progress in Alzheimer’s care, support and research locally and nationwide.  ALZ Stars go the distance in the fight against Alzheimer's disease, increasing awareness and inspiring others to take action.

As an ALZ Star, you will receive an official race jersey, fundraising support and, most importantly, join a community determined to leave its mark in the fight against Alzheimer’s.  Join us in the fight to end Alzheimer's, the best incentive to cross the finish line!
