Participate in Alzheimer's Memory Walk

Get on the move to end Alzheimer's

The Alzheimer's Memory Walk® is in need of team captains and participants for this meaningful event, which is the nation's largest that raises awareness and funds for Alzheimer care, support and research. We're putting a call out to volunteers -- young and old -- to stand up and fight against Alzheimer's. You can help too by joining the more than 200,000 people who are on the move for this cause.

Currently, there are walks scheduled in more than 600 communities and you can make a difference by joining the fight. Sign up to be a team leader (don't worry, starting and team is easy) and lead a walk, which is two to three miles long and held during a weekend morning in the fall.

Those who team up with the Alzheimer's Association can walk with a purpose and help move the world closer to being without Alzheimer's. Find a walk near you and get started. ... As teams, which are the heart of the memory walk, "we can MOVE a nation."
