Participants must raise $100 by August 20 to receive the official 2024 Walk t-shirt in time for Walk on September 21. Fundraising for the 2024 walk season continues until December 31, so participants can still earn their shirt until then. However, those who meet the $100 fundraising goal after August 20 will receive their shirts on a rolling basis three weeks after Walk day. 

September 1

Become an Elite Grand Champion (raise $2,500) by September 1 and your name will be on a personalize yard sign along the Walk route.  
If your team raises $15,000 between sponsorship and fundraising by September 1, your team will earn a table in our top team area on Walk day. However, if you raise $25,000 through sponsorship and fundraising, you will earn a hospitality tent on Walk day. 
Corporate Challenge ends on September 1 and winner will be announced at the Walk. Email Mary DeMars for more information about the Corporate Challenge, mcdemars@alz.org

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.
