Alzheimer’s Walk in the Park

Why We’re Walking

1 in 6 seniors are living with Alzheimer’s

Everyone knows someone impacted by this devastating illness. More than 14 million people care for someone living with Alzheimer’s every day. It could be your parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle, neighbor or friend who needs AFA’s services next.

We’re here for you. Wherever. Whenever. We’re walking because no one should feel alone on their journey with Alzheimer’s and dementia.

Walk with us wherever you are September 9-10, or join us at one of our in person sites.

How to get involved:

Step 1 – Form a team

Walk with Family

Walk with friends

Walk with coworkers

Step 2 – Raise funds toward your goal

Every person who raises $100 will get a t-shirt, while supplies last.

Raise $200, and you will receive a walk-branded, environmentally friendly stainless steel water bottle, while supplies last.

Raising $100 is easier than you think. Here are some helpful tips:

1. Tell Your Story

Are you caring for someone with Alzheimer’s or dementia?

Are you walking in memory of someone?

Fill your page with your “why” and watch how much impact you can make when you tell your story and break the stigma.

2. Ask 5 

Personally ask 5 friends to support you at $20 each. 

Don’t count anybody out! You might be surprised who donates, and every dollar counts.

$20 too high?

Ask 10 friends for $10.

3. Donate to your 
own page!

Make the first move and show you care!

People are more likely to give when they see you believe in your cause. 

Step 3 – Celebrate with us!
