About Walk to End Alzheimer's

The Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's is our national signature event which brings together family, friends, caregivers and concerned community members — who all want to make a difference.

Get Your College Involved!
Colleges for a Cause is a program that allows school communities to make a positive difference in the lives of those affected by Alzheimer's disease through friendly competition between local colleges and universities. Area schools compete against each other to raise funds and awareness for Alzheimer's disease in support of Walk to End Alzheimer's. The winner of the competition will be the school able to raise the most amount of money for the cause. Winners will be presented with a special prize during the opening ceremony for the Walk to End Alzheimer's, be featured in our newsletter, have their team photo displayed on the official Walk to End Alzheimer's website, and will receive a recognition plaque to display at their college/university.
