How to Get a Walk T-Shirt

Each year our Walk participants ask how they can earn a commemorative Walk to End Alzheimer's t-shirt. We know it can get confusing when you have individuals and teams fundraising. We hope this chart helps explain how you can earn that awesome purple keepsake.

Since our walk is free (and fundraising is highly encouraged) our walk t-shirts are an individual fundraising incentive. Each individual walker that raises $100 or more will get a t-shirt on Walk day.

We are so grateful to you, our fundraisers, were are telling their family, friends, neighbors and co-workers why this cause is important to you and raising funds.
