WALK Season is here!

WALK to END Alzheimer's

Dear Readers,

Each year, you probably hear about it: The WALK to END Alzheimer’s. Several years ago this event was called The Memory Walk. But, we felt like that might not be getting the message across quite right. We aren’t just walking because Alzheimer’s exists, we are walking because Alzheimer’s should NOT exist. We are walking to END Alzheimer’s – through our presence we are increasing awareness and through our donations we are increasing research efforts to bring an END Alzheimer’s.

It’s that time of year again – each summer we start gearing up for the walks that will take place across the state of Georgia in the fall. These events are wonderful – there is music, there is energy; there are ways to sign up to engage in clinical trials; you can get more information about the programs and services in your community; and you can register to become an Advocate and meet with legislators about supporting our efforts to END this disease.

If you don’t have much money, share your time – participate in the WALK or volunteer with us. If you don’t have much time, make a donation. If you don’t have much of either – share your VOICE – share our message with your friends so that they can register, donate and get involved. All of us can find a way to help END this disease! And together, we will.

Take the first step to a world without Alzheimer’s by finding a Walk near you. Once you register, you will have access to a wide range of tools and support through your Participant Center, ensuring a successful and fulfilling experience.
Our mission
To eliminate Alzheimer’s disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health.

Our vision
A world without Alzheimer’s disease.
