Are you passionate about putting an end to Alzheimer's disease? Do you want to get more involved with the Alzheimer's Association and the 2024 Walk to End Alzheimer's taking place in Frederick, MD on October 13th? Then we need you! Join your local Walk to End Alzheimer's Planning Committee and help grow the movement to end Alzheimer's from the ground up.

Committee members plan each Walk to End Alzheimer's event from the kick-off to the wrap-up. Activities of your local subcommittees include the following:

  • Community Engagement Committee - Marketing, Outreach, Community Events, Team Recruitment, Team Retention, AIM-Advocacy, Mission
  • Event Experience Committee - Planning for the Day of the Event, Event Set-Up and Logistics, Event Volunteer Guidance/Coaching, Event Route Coverage
  • Executive Leadership Team/Committee (ELT) - This small group of senior organization leaders and business owners have strong ties to other community leaders and other businesses, and are willing to network on our Walk's behalf to assist with building new relationships that may result in Walk sponsorships, company teams and more. ELT members are also willing to be Walk sponsors and form a Walk team.

Work with your Walk staff partner to select a subcommittee that best fits your skills and interests. You will receive resources and participate in an orientation to receive training on the basics of Alzheimer's disease, learn about Association programs and services, and receive an introduction to the Walk event model. Key Roles available within the subcommittees include Walk Chair, Event Experience Chair and Community Engagement Chair.

Subcommittee updates and/or virtual meetings generally take place monthly, with opportunities to sign-up for targeted assignments, community events and projects. One in-person Event Experience subcommittee meeting at the event site will take place in September. The address provided reflects the planned event location on October 15. Should some meetings shift to an in-person format, the opportunity to join by virtual means will remain available, whenever possible.

Walk Planning Committee members are also expected to start or join a Walk to End Alzheimer’s team at alz.org/Maryland/Walk to raise awareness and funds. Together, we can create a memorable and moving event experience for participants.
