Our Goal

The world may look a little different right now, but one thing hasn’t changed: our commitment to ending Alzheimer’s. This year, Walk to End Alzheimer’s is everywhere — on every sidewalk, track and trail.

Your health and safety are our top priorities. This year’s event won’t be a large in-person gathering — instead, we invite you to walk in small teams of friends and family while others in your community do the same. Because we are all still walking and fundraising for the same thing: a world without Alzheimer’s and all other dementia.

Women Conquer ALZ

Women are at the epicenter of the Alzheimer’s crisis. Not only are they more likely than men to be caregivers, women are also more likely to develop the disease. About 13 million American women are either living with Alzheimer’s or caring for someone who has it.

Support our Women Conquer ALZ teams for the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's®, the world’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research.

 

Matching Gift Information

We now have a matching gift form available for use by all participants. This form is intended to aid our Donor Services team in tracking matching gifts coming from Walk participants/donors so that they can be applied to your Walk page as soon as we receive your matching gift. If you or someone who is supporting your Walk fundraising has applied for a matching gift with a company, please take the time to fill out the 2020 Walk Matching Gift Form. Feel free to also view the Matching Gift FAQ for more information on matching gifts.
