IMPORTANT INFORMATION

 We walked on September 25th but the fight doesn't end there!  

We are still working towards our $275,000 goal and here are several ways for us to reach it by December 31st: 

1. Apply for a Matching Gift - Many corporations will match the charitable donations of their employees. To see if a company will match your gift or the gift of one of your donors, visit our Matching Gift Website. Have questions about matching gifts? Contact Fran Gibbons at fgibbons@alz.org.

2. Send one last email for donations – We all have that cousin or co-worker who promised to make a donation and they just haven’t quite got around to it. Send them an email sharing your personal experience on walk day and include why their donation is so important. Donations will be accepted through December 31st for this year’s walk. 

3. Mail in remaining offline donations – If you have check or cash donations to turn in, mail them to our office before December 31st.

  • $100 – Event Shirt (You can still earn your shirt until December 1st)
