Title: Walk to End Alzheimer's
Description: 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.

When you participate in Walk, your fundraising dollars fuel our mission-related initiatives of care, support and research. In addition, your actions, both through fundraising and participating in the event, help to change the level of Alzheimer's awareness in your community. At a Walk event, you can learn more about Alzheimer's disease and the support programs and services offered by your local chapter. You will also have unique opportunities to get involved with the cause through advocacy initiatives and clinical trial enrollment. These experiences, in addition to other on-site opportunities, help each participant connect to their reason for walking.

Take the first step to a world without Alzheimer's by finding a Walk near you. Once you register, you will have access to a wide range of tools and support through your Participant Center, ensuring a successful and fulfilling experience.

Fee/Admission?: Walk to End Alzheimer's is a free, family friendly event. However, it is also the nation's largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research. The funds raised through Walk to End Alzheimer's® help to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association. This event brings together more than 500 local walkers who, like you, know that fundraising is vital to enhancing local and national programs and accelerating research toward methods of treatment, prevention and, ultimately, a cure. To thank you for your efforts, we invite you to participate in our Incentive Program.
