Our Goal

The world may look a little different right now, but one thing hasn’t changed: our commitment to ending Alzheimer’s. This year, Walk to End Alzheimer’s is everywhere — on every sidewalk, track and trail.

Your health and safety are our top priorities. This year’s event won’t be a large in-person gathering — instead, we invite you to walk in small teams of friends and family while others in your community do the same. Because we are all still walking and fundraising for the same thing: a world without Alzheimer’s and all other dementia.

2020 Incentives Grid

1. Your health and safety are our top priorities. Shirts are being delivered via USPS in a Walk-branded envelope to anyone who met the $100 fundraising minimum by August 12. We regret any potential delays that you are experiencing while waiting for the delivery of your shirt. Anyone who registered and raised or donated $100 after the deadline will receive their shirt directly from our fulfillment center after Walk day. Due to potential delays by the post office, we regret we cannot guarantee delivery times.
Anyone meeting champions club levels at $500, $1,000 or $2,500 will receive an email from UPS with expected incentive delivery dates. This is not SPAM if you are expecting items. Fundraising continues until November 30 to qualify for the national incentive program. Fundraising for the 2020 Walk season will end on December 31.

2. Face masks from the July Give or Get $25 Challenge are continuing to be delivered. Due to a delay by the US Postal Service, we regret we cannot guarantee delivery dates. All face masks have shipped. Thank you for your patience. 

3. Window clings from the August Give or Get $25 Challenge are in production. We expect them to be delivered by the end of this month into early October. Due to potential delays by the US Postal Service, we regret we cannot guarantee delivery dates.

Walk Protocols

If you missed the opening ceremony, you can watch Promise Garden Ceremony online On Demand.  For the best viewing experience, log on from a computer. You will be prompted to enter your username and password to access the site. From here, you can converse with other walkers on the platform, visit our sponsors, national teams and mission booths. You will also gain access to a virtual backpack so as you visit certain areas, you can collect items to review at your leisure. Think of it as a virtual goodie bag minus all the physical stuff.

Download the Walk mobile app on your phone to mobile upload any check or credit card donations you receive. As a reminder, fundraising continues through November 30 for incentives such as t-shirts and champions club incentives. Participants raising a minimum $300 are also eligible to choose a prize from the national incentive program. All funds must be credited online by November 30 to participate.
