August Champions Campaign Central Ohio


During the month of August we are encouraging all Walk participants to work towards achieving "Champion” status to show your continued commitment in the fight against Alzheimer's and help move the mission forward. The Walk to End Alzheimer's Champions Club recognizes and rewards participants who reach special fundraising milestones. These individuals are leading the way in the fight against Alzheimer's — and you can too!

We all have a reason to walk and we want to highlight yours. Walk participants that achieve Champion level (raising a minimum of $500 individually) by midnight August 31, 2022 will receive a personalized sign on Walk day to highlight your reason for walking. 

Make a difference in the lives of those facing the disease today and in the future by raising funds to advance the critical care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.


  • If you haven’t already, REGISTER TODAY
  • As a registered walk participant we encourage you to reach out to your network and ask others to support the cause with a donation. 
  • Raise or donate $500 to your individual fundraising page by midnight August 31, 2022.  (Note: general "team" donations do not count towards this incentive; donations must be reflective on your individual participant page.)
  • Once complete, I'll reach out to get all the information for your personalized sign so it will be ready for pick up on Walk day! 
  • Note: Use the participant center or reach out directly for fundraising ideas / tips.  
If you've already a champion; you've already earned your personalized sign and we’ll be reaching out with information and next steps!
