The Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's® is full of flowers, each carried by someone committed to ending this disease. Because like flowers, our participants don't stop when something's in their way. They keep raising funds and awareness for a breakthrough in the fight against Alzheimer's and all other dementia.

The Walk to End Alzheimer's is happening — and you can join the event or Walk From Home in your neighborhood. No matter where you participate, know that your health and safety are a top priority. All local events will implement safety protocols, including physical distancing, contactless registration, hand sanitizing stations, and more. Per CDC guidelines around crowded outdoor settings, we ask that all Walk attendees be vaccinated against COVID-19 or wear a mask when in an over-crowded area. Masks will be available onsite.

The Alzheimer's Association will monitor CDC, state, and local guidelines to ensure Walk events adhere to recommendations and are safe for attendees. If you prefer to Walk From Home, you can still engage in many Walk-day experiences through the mobile app.
