Why We Walk: By supporting the Alzheimer's Association, we hope to increase awareness about the benefits of walking, encourage individuals to make important lifestyle changes and raise valuable dollars for research and education to fight Alzheimer's disease.
Thank you for rallying around a cause that affects 1 in 3 people in the communities where we live and work, and cost the nation over $259 billion in 2017.
You can help prevent it!
We believe that participating in walks across the country is the first STEP, but it doesn't stop there. Because of you, funds raised will help fight Alzheimer's disease through vital research, advocacy efforts and essential support programs and services in your community.
Your team donations will play an important role in improving the lives of people living with Alzheimer's, their families and caregivers. Get your team out walking!
As we work to fulfill our mission of helping "Build Healthier Communities," reducing chronic diseases through prevention and care is a top priority. The Alzheimer's Association shares our mission and brings passion to the cause. On behalf of the more than 5 million American's living with Alzheimer's disease, thank you!
Together, we can make a difference.
