$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.
