Walk Day is RAIN OR SHINE! If we need to cancel due to weather, you will receive an email the morning of the event.

Do I have to register to Walk? Yes, we want to know you’re walking with us and need every walker to sign a standard waiver through their official registration. There is no registration fee to Walk. However, we ask every walker to make a personal donation to commit to raising funds in the fight against Alzheimer’s.

When is my last chance to register online before Walk day? Thursday, September 21 at Noon After noon, all registrations must be done on Walk day at the “Registration” tent.

Do I need to register my children for the Walk? Yes, children should register. Parents/guardians can register children online or complete an offline registration form and sign the waiver on behalf of the child.

Are pets, strollers, bicycles and skates allowed on Walk day? We do allow strollers, but for everyone’s safety, we discourage skateboards and bicycles. Well-behaved dogs are welcome, but must be on a leash at all times.

The top 10 teams will be recognized during the Walk ceremony!
