Alzheimer's Walk


The Alzheimer's & Dementia Alliance of Wisconsin hosts Alzheimer's Walks in seven counties throughout our service area to raise awareness about the many ways in which we can help people who are impacted by Alzheimer's disease or another form of dementia. We walk to show the incredible amount of support that exists in these communities and beyond. We walk to raise necessary funding to continue to support and provide essential programs and services to those impacted by Alzheimer's disease.

We invite you to join us for an Alzheimer's Walk in a community near you as we STEP FORWARD, GIVE HOPE and make a difference. You can participate as an individual or recruit a team. Teams come in all shapes and sizes, from family teams to work teams, church teams to friends and neighbors. Signing up is easy and being a part of this event is fun!

About the Alzheimer's Walk

Alzheimer's Walk 2010Join other supporters for the annual Alzheimer’s Walk! The walk is a fundraiser for the Alzheimer’s & Dementia Alliance of Wisconsin and takes place in several counties in the south central Wisconsin area.

More than 110,000 Wisconsin families have been touched by Alzheimer’s and dementia, and many more people are providing care. Alzheimer’s is not normal aging - it is a progressive and fatal disease, and you can help address this escalating epidemic.

Every penny raised at the Alzheimer’s Walk stays here in south central Wisconsin -- providing critical support and education to both families and professionals impacted by any dementia-related disease. By attending the Alzheimer’s Walk, whether you walk or not, you not only support the Alzheimer’s & Dementia Alliance financially, but you also show elected officials that you support Alzheimer issues.

Alzheimer's Walk 2010Organize a team!

As a TEAM CAPTAIN, your commitment is THE ESSENTIAL INGREDIENT in making the Alzheimer's Walk a success!

Forming a team for the the Alzheimer's Walk will allow you to collaborate to raise awareness and funds, and you'll have an even better time on event day. Together, as a team, you are a force much greater than what you can accomplish alone.

Hosting a third-party event can be a great way to raise money for your walk team, but it takes a lot of planning from start to finish. To guide you with your event, we created a fundraising toolkit to help you get started.
