News and Announcements

$100 Million Raised in 2023!

Thanks to the unrelenting dedication of volunteers and participants, the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's® raised $100 million in 2023 — a record amount for any single year since the inception of the world's largest event to fight the disease. These vital funds enable the Association to deliver 24/7 care and support, advocate fearlessly for people facing the disease and fuel groundbreaking research across the globe.

And this is only the beginning. With the current advances in treatment, our work is more important than ever. We won't rest until everyone living with the disease — at any stage — can get the treatment, care and support they need and deserve. Register today to join us in our fight for a future without Alzheimer's and all other dementia.

The land on which the Walk to End Alzheimer's - Chicago will take place on includes the traditional homelands of the Ho-Chunk, Otoe, Missouria, Iowas, Menominee, Meskwaki, Sauk, Miami, Wea, Piankashaw, Kickapoo, and Illini Confederacy Nations as well as the Concil of the Three Fires: Potawatomi, Ojibwe, and Odawa Nations. By acknowledging the land, we recognize that it holds significance for its original stewards: the Native Nations and peoples of the region. We acknowledge the ground on which our Walk to End Alzheimer's will take place on so that all who work and partner with us know that we recognize our responsibilities to the peoples of that land and that we strive to address that history so that it guides our work in the present and the future. The Alzheimer's Association recognizes the importance of remembering which is why we remember and honor the original stewards of the lands we Walk to End Alzheimer's on. If you believe a Nation is missing from this list, please contact Amelia Garza, Diversity and Inclusion Manager, at amgarza@alz.org.
