Our Goal

We're walking in 2021 — and we invite you to join us.

We're moving forward with plans to host Walk to End Alzheimer's® in person this fall. The health and safety of our participants, staff and volunteers remain our top priorities as we make decisions about event details in your community, and we’ll continue to offer options to participate online and in your neighborhood.

Be one of the first to register and receive a set of Walk flags to proudly display. While supplies last.
