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.

Have you heard the good news? We’re moving forward to end Alzheimer’s — which means we’re still
walking in 2020, but things will look a little different. This year, the Walk to End Alzheimer’s will be
on every sidewalk, track and trail in this country and we can’t wait for you to be a part of it!

To celebrate what we know will be an incredible walk day experience, we’re giving away the ultimate
summer accessory now through August 31 — a limited edition Alzheimer’s Association beach towel!
All you have to do is register as a Team Captain and raise $100 for your team. Then, we’ll ship your
towel straight to your door so you can enjoy some fun in the sun!
