Choose Your Own Challenge

Challenge yourself to change the course of Alzheimer’s disease by signing up to be an ALZ Star. Go the distance in the fight against this devastating disease by training for and completing ANY event while raising valuable funds to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association.

ALZ Stars are athletes everywhere, moving to END Alzheimer’s disease, all while raising funds and awareness.  
Making Your Miles Matter in the race to END Alzheimer's disease is as easy as 1,2,3! 

Step 1: Join ALZ Stars 
By joining ALZ Stars, you are joining athletes everywhere moving to end Alzheimer’s disease.

Step 2: Choose Your Challenge 
Once you’ve joined the team, you can register for ANY event, such as a 5k race, triathlon, bicycle ride. etc to participate.

Step 3: Do your part to END ALZ 
Personalize and share your fundraising page with everyone you know and help raise the much needed funds to find the first survivor of Alzheimer’s disease.


Please note: Registering for ALZ Stars is separate from event registration.  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 designate your event, it’s time to start training toward the finish line and fundraising to fight Alzheimer’s!

Team benefits

Each REGISTERED ALZ Stars team member will receive an exclusive ALZ Star singlet once you meet your first fundraising milestone of $100, to train in and wear on race day. We can help with a training questions, fundraising guidance and, most importantly, the camaraderie of a team that is participating to achieve the same vision--a world without Alzheimer’s disease.
