Walk to End Alzheimer's

The Alzheimer's Association has re-branded Memory Walk into Walk to End Alzheimer's. This is the first year under our new name. By changing the name to include the word Alzheimer's, as well as firmly indicating our goal to find the cure, we hope to attract more people and raise more awareness of this disease and the families affected by it.
Here in Northern Michigan we have two walks already scheduled. The web pages are up and active. Today is the perfect time to sign up your team, or join an existing team, and get involved.
Remember, you do not have to attend the walk to participate! We understand that people are busy and Saturdays in the fall are not always convenient. By raising funds through the spring and summer months, you can still be an irreplacible part of this year's Walk to End Alzheimer's!
Another way to participate is to support a registered walker. Click on their name to make an on-line donation to the walker of your choice. You can make your donation in memory of, or in honor of, the person you choose. Click on the links below for the walk closest to you:
Thank you for helping us make this inaugural year of Walk to End Alzheimer's a successful event! We wouldn't be here without the support of friends like you!
