Walk Day is the day we come together for the cause, but the fundraising continues until December 31, 2019.  If you are planning to host a Team Fundraiser, email Walk Director Jill Grosenheider-Rudd at jrudd@alz.org so your event can be added to our "News & Events Section." 


Facebook Fundraisers
All Participants

The Walk to End Alzheimer’s website now allows participants registered for a 2019 Walk event to log in to their participant center and set up a ‘Facebook Fundraiser’ so that all donations received through Facebook will credit their fundraising page, and will be deposited directly to the Alzheimer’s Association and their local Walk campaign. Facebook Fundraisers can motivate more friends to donate quickly on Facebook, and have the funds appear on your Walk to End Alzheimer’s fundraising page. You can easily invite your Facebook friends to support your Fundraiser, and they will see updates about your progress as well as from other friends who donate. Your donors are also encouraged to invite and share with their friends. 

Follow instructions posted HERE to learn how to link your participant page to Facebook.  Note: you have to start this process in your participant enter, NOT on Facebook. 
HERE is a short video to help you set this up correctly.  

IMPORTANT NOTE: Birthday Fundraisers and Donate Buttons do not count towards your Walk to End Alzheimer's total.  This fundraiser needs to be started in your Walk participant center.
