Our Goal

Families facing Alzheimer's and all other dementia need us now more than ever — and with your help, we can be there for them. Every dollar you raise through Walk to End Alzheimer's allows the Alzheimer's Association to provide 24/7 care and support while accelerating critical research. Register today to help those in your community and beyond.

We salute the health care professionals and long-term care staff who are dedicating themselves to tirelessly serve the Alzheimer's community. You are making a difference, and we stand with you in this fight. Join us.
