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.

A WALK MESSAGE FROM OUR CHAPTER'S EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR


2020 FUNDRAISING INCENTIVE LEVELS

2020 Incentives Grid
Your health and safety are our top priorities. Shirts are being delivered directly via USPS in a Walk-branded envelope to anyone who meets the $100 fundraising minimum. The last day to earn a t-shirt is December 31. 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. 

Fundraising continues until December 31 to qualify for the national incentive program. Fundraising for the 2020 Walk season will also end on December 31.

 2020 WALK TO END ALZHEIMER'S PROTOCOLS

MAINSTAGE
If you missed attending ANY of this year's pre and post Walk live events online, you can still watch. 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. 

MOBILE APP- UPLOAD CHECK DONATIONS 
Download the Walk mobile app on your phone to mobile upload any check or credit card donations you receive. As a reminder, check donations must be paid payable to the ALZHEIMER'S ASSOCIATION. Checks not made payable correctly will be returned to the donor. Fundraising continues through December 31 for incentives such as t-shirts and champions club medals, shirts and pullovers. Participants raising a minimum $300 are also eligible to choose a prize from the national incentive program. All funds must be credited online by December 31 to participate. The Walk to End Alzheimer's App can be downloaded for free on Google Play or in the App Store. On Walk day, you can also open up the app to track your steps and follow a virtual path. 

DONATIONS- POST WALK FUNDRAISING CONTINUES THROUGH TO DECEMBER 31, 2020 
We accept checks made payable to the ALZHEIMER'S ASSOCIATION. Please help us ensure the integrity of your donations. Any checks not properly filled out will be returned to the donor. Due to strict fundraising guidelines, we cannot accept checks made out to you, your team, or made payable to the Foundation or Society. Both organizations do exist but they are not us. Checks can be mobile uploaded via the Walk app for the fastest crediting or they can be mailed to: Alzheimer's Association, PO Box 9924, McLean, VA 22102. If mailing donations, please include your personal donation form. This can be found on your public-facing Walk webpage hyperlinked Mail-In donation or in your online participant center. Cash donations can be banked and a credit card donation made online to yourself or your team member. Cash donations can also be banked and converted into a personal or cashier's check made payable to the Alzheimer's Association. If you have questions regarding donations, please reach out to Jenn, jchavez@alz.org or by phone to 757-383-8923. 

SOCIAL MEDIA- SHARE YOUR EXPERIENCE BY SHOWING US WHERE AND WHO YOU ARE WALKING WITH
If you haven't already, please join our Walk to End Alzheimer's group on Facebook. Post your selfies and team photos here too so we can see you and share it on our social sites as the season continues on. Please exercise caution if you choose to walk with those outside your immediate family or team. 

WE WANT YOUR PHOTOS! Not on social media? Please share your photos with us! Email your photos of you and your team or friends safely social distancing during your Walk to Jenn, jchavez@alz.org. 

We will be utilizing some of your photos for our online Post Walk Celebration Party on November 10 at 6 PM. We may even use your photos in future Walk marketing promotions! Take a selfie or photo of your team and post on social media with #Walk2EndALZ #ENDALZ #ShowYourPurple
