Walk to End Alzheimer’s (r) is the Alzheimer's Association's annual signature event to educate, advocate, raise public awareness and funds to support families facing Alzheimer's and all other dementia. The funds we raise through Walk fuel critical disease research and enable us to provide support services. Most of our programs are free and offered in many languages, and our helpline is available 24/7. The Volunteer Walk Event Planning Committee needs help year round in:
Providing walker coaching and technical support,
Marketing and outreach to attract new participants,
Enhancing the event experience,
Engaging with local companies through networking and speaking opportunities,
Administrative committee support and data analysis
