The Walk to End Alzheimer’s movement unites the entire community in a display of combined strength and dedication. Together, we can end Alzheimer’s - the nation’s 6th leading cause of death. Last year, the Denver Walk to End Alzheimer’s raised over $1.3 million dollars and out of 600 Walks, was Top Ten in the country. OUR GOAL IS TO BE #1 IN THE COUNTRY! Use your talents and strengths to plan one of the elite Walks in the country!
