Alzheimer's isn't stopping. Neither are we. Planning the 2021 Walk to End Alzheimer's, Treasure Valley is a great way to grow your management skills and make a big community impact in a passionate, relentless nonprofit setting. This year's event will be held on October 2, but it takes a year of planning and hard work to make it successful. Each year, dozens of volunteers, like you, plan the Walk to End Alzheimer's events to raise critical funds for Alzheimer's disease research, care & support programs, and policy work at the state and federal levels. Your work will support the 5.8 million Americans living with Alzheimer's and the millions more that love, support and care for them.
Busy schedule? Unsure how to use your skills to get involved? No problem! There's something for everyone.
This dedicated group of volunteers drives the event’s development and growth - advancing the fight against Alzheimer’s from the ground up.
Key specialties we are looking for volunteer roles in:
Team Recruitment: Ask your network of friends, family, coworkers and community members to support the cause by starting a Walk team.
Sponsorship: Identify opportunities to engage the business community in the mission by sponsor the Walk. Strengthen relationship with current sponsors.
Team Retention: Retain prior Walk teams by supporting past Team Captains and implementing retention engagement plans. This committee executes most of these efforts by making phone calls and emails.
Logistics: Ensure that all event day components including start/finish line, ceremony, route and entertainment are well planned and give all our Walkers an excellent Walk day experience.
Marketing: Create awareness of the disease by promoting the Walk. Build public awareness through local media involvement, social media and grassroots marketing efforts.
Mission: Connecting the community and the participants to our mission throughout the Walk season by cultivating our highest donors. This includes writing Thank You notes and special recognition on Walk day.
The work of local Walk Planning Committees will be crucial for our continued success. I hope you will consider joining this powerful group of volunteers and commit your time to moving our mission forward.
