Walk to End Alzheimer’s

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. Participating in your local Walk is a wonderful way to make a difference in your community. There is no fee to register and no fundraising minimum to participate, although we encourage you to fundraise and earn some fantastic prizes while helping to end Alzheimer’s disease.
