The Alzheimer's Association seeks volunteers to join the Planning Committee for the 2017 Duluth Area Walk to End Alzheimer's to take place on Saturday, September 9, 2017. Serve on the Committee that helps to plan, coordinate and facilitate the Walk to End Alzheimer’s, the world's largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer's care, support and research. Held annually in more than 600 communities nationwide, this inspiring event calls on participants of all ages and abilities to reclaim the future for millions. Together, we can end Alzheimer’s disease, the nation’s sixth-leading cause of death.

Upon joining the Planning Committee, members can choose a subcommittee that best fits their skills and interests. Duluth subcommittees include Team Retention & Recruitment, Logistics, Publicity and Revenue.

The subcommittees generally hold one meeting per month for eight months (February - September) and the whole Planning Committee meets quarterly starting in January. Generally all meetings take place in the evening or at a time that works best for the Planning Committee and subcommittees.

The Walk to End Alzheimer's would not be possible without the support of volunteers. Specifically, Walk Committee members can get involved in a wide variety of projects related to special event planning and management. Examples of projects include sponsor recruitment, team recruitment, team retention, marketing and outreach, and logistics.

The mission of the Alzheimer’s Association is to eliminate Alzheimer’s disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health.
