2015 Walk to End Alzheimer's - Central Illinois Chapter

The Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's® is the nation's largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer care, support and research. This inspiring event calls on volunteers of all ages to become champions in the fight against Alzheimer's.



The time is now to begin your fundraising for the 2015 Walk to End Alzheimer's. Our website and Chapter offices have many new resources in place to help you achieve and even exceed your fundraising goals this year. We are always just a phone call or email away if you have any problems, so try it out for yourself and see what we're talking about! Register yourself and your team today by visiting www.alz.org/walk, and we will see you at the Team Captain Kick off parties! Call Development Manager Kari Gabbert toll free at 800.272.3900 or email: kgabbert@alz.org, or visit alz.org/walk.


Together, we can do it!  A portion of funds raised go
toward research that will someday lead to prevention and a cure.
