Walk to End Alzheimer's®

The End of Alzheimer's Disease Starts Here

Join the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's® and unite in a movement to reclaim the future for 210,000 Illinois residents with Alzheimer's disease. Since 1989, we've mobilized millions of Americans; now, we ask you to register for Walk to End Alzheimer's, the nation's largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer care, support and research. Together we can end Alzheimer's disease - the nation's sixth-leading cause of death.

In 2013 in the Illinois Chapter, more than 11,360 participants and 1,397 teams raised more than $1.9 million in the fight against Alzheimer's disease. Please join us.
