We Are On a Mission: Improve the Lives of Individuals and Families Who Experience Alzheimer’s or Related Dementias

Same mission, different place to walk.

The Alzheimer’s & Dementia Alliance of Wisconsin is taking proactive steps to protect community members affected by Alzheimer’s or other dementia. Although our annual walks have been in-person in September, we’re pivoting to virtual walk fundraisers to continue this walk tradition.

Community members impacted with Alzheimer’s or other dementias need us now more than ever. YOU can make a difference as an #AlzWalker! Walk with us on Wednesdays to benefit your health while at the same time show your support to the community. You set the walk goal and donation amount. All proceeds go back into the community providing educational and social services to enhance their emotional, physical and mental well-being.

Currently, more than 110,000 Wisconsin residents are living with Alzheimer’s or other dementias. As of today, there is no cure. But there are strategies and treatments that enable people to live, create and maintain a high quality of life throughout the course of the disease.

To that end, the ADAW team works diligently to improve the lives of individuals and families who experience Alzheimer’s or related dementias. We provide personal consultations, and access to education and resources.

Because of you, we can continue helping individuals on their journey.

CELEBRATE YOUR WALK, Your Way – Whether it’s on a home treadmill or a walk around the block with your dog, celebrate your walk goal by using I’m an #AlzWalker on social media.
