Join us for a week of exciting and educational events showcasing the artists, designers, musicians, filmmakers, authors, fashion and beauty changemakers who are lighting up our screens and airwaves to shift our consciousness and conversations for good.
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 passionate volunteers to serve on the planning committee for the 2021 Silicon Valley 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, a willingness to step up and help out, and those who want to meet others who also care deeply about ending Alzheimer's. Whatever your talents, we have a role for you! We are physically located in San Jose, CA, and are seeking volunteers from all over the Bay Area. At this time all opportunities are virtual until it is safe to gather together.
The full committee meets monthly, and we are actively seeking new members for 2021. We are currently meeting virtually until it's safe to do so in person.
In addition to the monthly meeting, Sub-Committees also meet once a month, and there are additional activities that you can complete on your own time.
Committees roles include:
Retention - Do you like to build relationships? Are you good at coaching? Like to make phone calls? Join us!
Company Engagement - Do you work in the corporate world and have many connections on LinkedIn? Are you unafraid to ask a local Company to support the Walk to End Alzheimer's by forming a Corporate Team or Sponsoring the Walk? This might be the committee for you!
Recruitment - Are you a social butterfly with lots of connections? Do you belong to a Fraternal Club or Sorority? Do you have connections with faith-based organizations or local chambers? Do you enjoy talking to people and offering encouragement? We need you on the Recruitment team.
Mission - Do you have a deep personal connection to Alzheimer's & Dementia? Want to share your story with others? Help us bring awareness of Alzheimer's and our fight to end it by joining our Mission Committee. If you like writing personal notes and cards, this might be the committee for you.
Logistics - Are you a project manager? Are details your thing? Event planning in your blood? We can use your help!
Marketing & Outreach - Are you a Social Media Influencer? Do you have connections in the media? Is writing your thing? We could use you!
Due to Covid-19, the 2020 Walk to End Alzheimer's was not held as a large gathering, but rather the walk was "Everywhere." In 2021 we hope to gather together again in some capacity, but we also anticipate some type of hybrid event incorporating elements of the 2020 Walk.
