What is the Memory Walk?
Each year, more than 400 communities across the United States band together to participate in the annual Memory Walk for the Alzheimer's Association. The Memory Walk is the largest fundraiser for the Alzheimer's Association.
The money raised is used to fund vital programs and services such as helplines, support groups, and educational events.
Thousands walk to make a difference in the lives of people affected by Alzheimer's Disease. The day is a fun event with friends, families and neighbors getting together to support those affected by the disease and to celebrate the success and strides being made for those with Alzheimer's Disease.
Many people walk as teams and a team captain leads the way. Participants can celebrate the day and enjoy the camaraderie with their team and other walkers.
