Over 5 million Americans suffer from Alzheimer's disease and it is the 6th leading cause of death in the United States. The Alzheimer’s Association is a volunteer-driven organization and we are looking for motivated volunteers to serve on the planning committee for the 2021 Napa Walk to End Alzheimer's. We are looking for natural leaders, creative types, resourcefulness, people with a can-do attitude, a good sense of humor, willingness to step up and help out, and those who want to meet others who also care about ending Alzheimer's. Whatever your talents we have a role for you!
Committee member responsibilities include:
Engaging with local businesses to support the event
Recruiting new teams
Marketing the event through local communication channels
Coaching Teams and participants
Recognizing VIP donors and fundraisers
Overseeing event logistics and coordinating day-of event volunteers
The committee meets monthly and we are actively seeking new members for 2021. Meetings are all virtual but this opportunity is for those who live or work in Napa County. (If you are out of the area please find your local walk on alz.org/walk.)
