The prospect of raising money can be intimidating. But with proper planning and helpful tools, reaching your fundraising goal will be no sweat!
Once you register, you'll have access to a personal fundraising webpage and fundraising tools in your Participant Center. Your fundraising webpage makes it easy for donors to make a donation toward your efforts and track your fundraising progress over the next few months.
You can also create a Facebook Fundraiser from your Participant Center! After you register, visit your Participant Center to set up your Facebook Fundraiser. Once it's set up, donations that you receive through your linked Facebook Fundraiser will appear on your personal page and automatically count toward your RTR fundraising goal!
Your fundraising dollars fuel Alzheimer's Association initiatives to provide care, support and research.

Get the Fundraising App!
iTunes App Store | Google Play
Use the app or log in at the top of the page to:
Access mobile deposit
Have you received check donations toward your fundraising efforts for A Ride to Remember? No need to mail them in - you can install the Alzheimer's Events mobile app and deposit them directly from your phone! All donations deposited through our mobile check deposit will instantly be added to your fundraising page.
Build your personal webpage
The Alzheimer's Association uses Luminate Online for online fundraising. When you customize your webpage, be sure to highlight why you're riding for the Alzheimer's Association. Use pictures to add a visual component to your fundraising page. If you are riding in honor or memory of a loved one, consider posting a picture of you with that person.
Set or edit your fundraising goal
We recommend that Virtual Ride participants set their goal for at least $252 to earn the t-shirt and that Group Ride participants set their goal for at least $750 to reach the fundraising minimum and earn the jersey by raising $750. You may choose to set your goal higher to earn our bibs/shorts, gloves and vest! When you set your goal, think about the programs and services made possible by the money you raise.
Be the first to contribute
Once you are registered to ride, your easiest pledge will come from yourself. It is always easier to ask others if you have already demonstrated your commitment to your goal with a personal donation.
Email your contacts using our fundraising templates
We've made it easy for you to spread the word about your fundraising efforts! Just load your email contacts and customize our email templates, and your potential donors will receive an email with a link to donate on your webpage.
The most successful fundraisers use a variety of methods.
Take advantage of the tools in your Participant Center, app and Facebook Fundraiser, then add postcard mailings, employer matching gifts, and creative fundraising ideas! Stay tuned for more fundraising tips.
