About Walk to End Alzheimer's

The Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's™ is the nation's largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer's care, support and research. Held annually in more than 600 communities nationwide, this inspiring event calls on participants of all ages and abilities to reclaim the future for millions. Together, we can end Alzheimer's disease, the nation's sixth-leading cause of death.

At walks throughout the Greater Dallas area, thousands of walkers show their support for the cause, and together we raised more than $682,000 in 2012! Participating in your local Walk is a meaningful way to make a difference in your community. There is no fee to register and no fundraising minimum to participate, although we encourage you to fundraise and earn some fantastic prizes while benefiting a great cause. Each walker who raises $100 or more is eligible to receive one Walk t-shirt.
