The 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 hundreds of communities across the country, this inspiring event calls on volunteers of all ages to become "Champions" and raise funds in the fight against Alzheimer's, the nation's sixth leading cause of death. Champions include those living with the disease, families, caregivers, and corporate and community leaders who actively support the Walk to End Alzheimer's.
