This year, Walk is everywhere

No matter where you are, you can walk in small, safe groups of friends and family in your community. Because we're all raising funds for one goal: A world without Alzheimer's and all other dementia.

Meetings, events and participation, both in internal and external activities, will be conducted online or by phone, whenever possible. You can reach us by calling 304.343.2717 or email: wvinfo@alz.org.
