While your Walk event is over, we are still planning and organizing logistics for 4 other Walk events throughout our 7,400 sq mi territory. We need to ensure that dedicated staff persons are able to assist you when you come.

Instant credit! If you want to drop off checks or cash, please make sure that checks are made payable to ALZHEIMER'S ASSOCIATION.

Following the deadline, you will receive an email or offline kit with directions on how to redeem your incentive prize. Only one code per participant. Therefore, if you registered multiple people with the same email, you will need to log in and change or update it in order to participate in the program. Have additional questions? Email your staff partner at jchavez@alz.org.  

CAR RAFFLE TICKETS
If you took tickets to sell for fundraising credit, you have until October 27 to sell. That is the last day per our gaming commission permit. ALL stubs, monies and unsold tickets are property of the Alzheimer's Association and must be turned in. Mail or call us to arrange drop off of supply.
