We have a great day planned! Come early and visit our sponsor tables. Collect their signatures and be entered to win a Walk to End Alzheimer's hoodie. Also, the sponsors will have breakfast food items at their tables as you visit.

Bring money to purchase raffle tickets to win a variety of amazing baskets, including a jar filled with $175 in scratch-off lottery tickets, a GIGANTIC basket filled with stuffed animals, zoo tickets, wine baskets and many others. $10 gets you 25 tickets!

Don't miss the opportunity to take your team photo! Capture a special memory from the day.

There are many Downtown Akron businesses offering specials to Walk participants following the event tomorrow. Look for a list in the program that you'll receive when you enter the ballpark.

And... join us following the Walk for a free hot dog and cracker jack lunch inside the ballpark courtesy of Foresters Financial.

Speaking of dogs... you're welcome to bring your furry friend on the Walk; however, only service dogs are permitted inside the ballpark.


 

Thank you for your support in the fight for Alzheimer's first survivor. I look forward to seeing you tomorrow! I'll be the tall girl with the purple skirt. Come find me and say hello. I'd love to meet you and your team members in person!

We've seen dramatic growth in team fundraising by connecting Facebook, sharing your fundraising page online, and use of the Walk to End Alzheimer's® mobile app. Starting in 2019, cash and checks received at your local Alzheimer's Association chapter office may take up to three weeks to be reflected in your online fundraising totals. For immediate credit, we encourage teams to download the Walk to End Alzheimer's® mobile app and use the mobile check deposit feature, and continue to make the most of online fundraising resources.


Sample Why I Walk Sign.jpg

Everyone has a reason to end Alzheimer's. Share your story! For every $500 you individually raise, you are eligible to create a custom sign with text and photos to be displayed along the route on Walk day. After the Walk is over, take your sign home with you to remember the day.
