Alzheimer's Association is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization. The Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's is the nation's largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer's care, support and research. Held annually in more than 600 communities nationwide, this inspiring event calls on participants of all ages and abilities to reclaim the future for millions. Together, we can end Alzheimer's disease, the nation's sixth-leading cause of death.
Walk to End Alzheimer's unites the entire community - family, friends, co-workers, social and religious groups and more - in a display of combined strength and dedication in the fight against this devastating disease. While there is no fee to register, each participant is expected to fundraise in order to contribute to the cause and raise awareness. The Alzheimer's Association provides free, easy-to-use tools and staff support to help each participant reach their fundraising goal.
We walk because we have the power to make a difference and fight back.
We walk so future generations won't have to ace Alzheimer's.
We walk to share our story of living with Alzheimer's and join together to raise awareness and funds.
We walk to honor and remember those we have lost.
