The Walk to End Alzheimer’s
03/10/2011 - By Los Angeles, California

The Walk to End Alzheimer’s

The Walk to End Alzheimer’s—previously known as the Memory Walk—is the nation’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support, and research programs.

Held annually in hundreds of communities across the country, this inspiring event calls on volunteers of all ages to become Champions in the fight against Alzheimer’s. Champions include those living with the disease, families, caregivers, businesses, and community leaders who actively support the Walk to End Alzheimer’s. Since 1989, walk participants across the United States have raised more than $300 million for the cause.

To start a future team or make a donation, contact the Alzheimer’s Association at www.alzla.org or 323-930-6228.

The Alzheimer’s Association 18th annual Memory Walk, ® (now known as The Walk to End Alzheimer’s) took place on Sunday, November 7 at Century Park (2000 Avenue of the Stars, LA 90067) in Century City, Los Angeles. More than 3,000 people from throughout Los Angeles County participated in this year’s walk to raise awareness and funds to fight Alzheimer’s disease.
