To get started, click on the "Sign Up Now" button above. Once you join the ALZ Stars and sign our commitment form, you will receive an email with your race discount code. Once you have received this code, please register for The Flying Pig. Note: In order to maximize the funds raised through this event, the ALZ Stars program does not automatically provide you with your race entry. After you sign up, it’s time to start training toward the finish line and fundraising to fight Alzheimer’s!

Team benefits

Each ALZ Stars team member will receive a technical T-shirt to train in and wear on race day once completing their fundraising minimum requirements. We will provide you with a training plan, fundraising guidance and, most importantly, the camaraderie of a team that is participating to achieve the same vision--a world without Alzheimer’s disease. At the end of race season, we’ll celebrate our progress and share our enthusiasm at our annual team dinner.
