Want an easy way to help with the fight against Alzheimer’s?

Held annually in more than 600 communities nationwide, the Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s® is the world’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research. This inspiring event calls on participants of all ages and abilities to join the fight against the disease!

The Walk in Raleigh-Durham is held in September each year. This year, it will be September 15, 2018, at the North Carolina Museum of Art, 2110 Blue Ridge Rd, Raleigh, NC 27607 . The walk begins with registration at 8:30 am and kicks off at 10:00am. Don’t come late! There are activities and vendors, and over a thousand people all carrying flowers in memory or in honor of loved ones with this disease.

Someday, there will be a person carrying a white flower to symbolize survivors.

When you participate in a Walk, your fundraising dollars fuel our mission, and your participation in the event helps to change the level of Alzheimer’s awareness in your community. The Alzheimer’s Association provides free, easy-to-use tools and staff support to help participants reach their fundraising goal. While there is no fee to register, we encourage participants to fundraise in order to contribute to the cause and raise awareness.

Take the first step by finding a Walk near you. Once you register, you will have access to a wide range of tools and support through your customized Participant Center. Join us and lead the way to Alzheimer’s first survivor. Together, we can end Alzheimer’s disease!
