The Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s™ is the nation’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research. Held annually in more than 600 communities nationwide, this inspiring event calls on participants of all ages and abilities to reclaim the future for millions. Together, we can end Alzheimer’s disease, the nation’s sixth-leading cause of death.
Through the Walk to End Alzheimer’s, the Alzheimer’s Association of Northeastern New York unites the entire community — family, friends, co-workers, social and religious groups and more — in a display of combined strength and dedication in the fight against this devastating disease. While there is no fee to register, each participant is expected to raise funds in order to contribute to the cause and to raise awareness of the disease. The Alzheimer’s Association provides free, easy-to-use tools and staff support to help participants reach their fundraising goals.
When you participate in Walk, your fundraising dollars fuel mission-related initiatives of care, support and research. In addition, your actions, both through fundraising and participating in the event, help to change the level of Alzheimer’s awareness in our community. At a walk event, you can learn more about Alzheimer’s disease and the support programs and services offered by the local chapter. You will also have unique opportunities to get involved with the cause through advocacy initiatives and clinical trial enrollment. Take the first step to a world without Alzheimer’s by visiting and registering your team.
